Works keep Southampton post office closed until 2022

Work at the post office in Southampton means it will stay closed until early next year, the Government said yesterday.

It was earlier expected to be open this month.

A Government spokeswoman said: “The Bermuda Post Office is advising the public that the Southampton post office will remain closed until early January 2022, due to continued work being done on the building.

“The public will recall that since August, the Southampton post office has been undergoing renovations, which include expansive floor repairs, plumbing upgrades and electrical work.”

Wayne Furbert, the Minister for the Cabinet Office, said last month that renovations were ongoing.

He added: “Hopefully we’ll get that work completed as soon as possible.”

When asked if the post office would reopen in early December, as had been expected, Mr Furbert said: “I cannot at this time say exactly the time, it will be confirmed in December, but we want to get it open as soon as possible.”

The Government spokeswoman added yesterday: “The BPO takes this opportunity to thank the area residents and businesses for their continued patience and understanding as the necessary upgrades near completion.

“The BPO wishes all residents and its valued customers a safe holiday season.”
