Paget Post Office to close on May 29

The Paget Post Office will be closing at the end of next month, the Bermuda Post Office has announced this afternoon.

There will be no redundancies as a result of this decision on May 29 and the four employees who work at the Paget Post Office will be relocated and/or redeployed elsewhere.

The postboxes will continue to be serviced until the end of their contracts, on December 31, but customers who wish to rent boxes elsewhere are welcome to do so at any of the remaining locations. Home delivery to all residents in Paget and throughout the entire Island will continue.

This decision is part of the BPO's strategy of streamlining operations to make the department more efficient and effective.

Over the past four years, the BPO has reduced its staffing level by 35 per cent, or 82 positions, from 232 to 150. The BPO has also cut its budget deficit from $10 million in 2010 to $7 million this year.

The BPO is focused on revenue generation and becoming a more innovative, customer-focused and sustainable postal service.

“The BPO apologises for any inconvenience this may cause customers and Paget postbox renters,” the BPO said in a statement. “We also wish to thank our staff for their hard work, dedication and support and to thank the public for supporting the BPO for over 200 years.”

For further information, call the BPO at 297-7893.
