A NEW Post Office has opened in Greenock.

The facility is based in the Nisa shop on Auchmead Road as a replacement for the Nairn Road branch which closed three years ago.

Opening hours are 7.30am-7.30pm Monday to Friday, Saturday 8.30am–5pm and Sunday 9am– 3pm.

The Post Office says this offers almost 75 hours of service a week for customers.

Angela Smith, Post Office change area manager, said: “We are delighted to have restored a Post Office to this area of Greenock in this brand new shop.

"We know how important a Post Office is to a community."
