Have your say on future of the IOM Post Office

Mon, 17 Sep 2018

Residents on the Isle of Man are being reminded to have their say on the future of post office services on the Island.

The Isle of Man Post Office says fewer people are sending letters and using post offices, but parcel deliveries are increasing due to more people shopping online.The organisaton believes these changes have led to it reporting a loss for the first time in its history.

A survey has been published on the Government's website asking Manx residents what changes they think would be acceptable in a bid to save money.

Suggestions include cutting Saturday's letter deliveries, increasing the cost of postage and reducing the opening hours of post offices.

The survey and more details about the consultation can be found online, with responses being accepted until October 2nd.
