The Town Council has received the following statement from Post Office Services:-
A Post Office spokesperson said: “Great Torrington Post Office will close at its current location in March 2021. Operator Gillett’s SPAR has made the difficult decision to close their store where the branch is based. The resignation has very recently been submitted and the vacancy will soon be advertised on www.runapostoffice.co.uk as we know how important a Post Office is to a community. The current operator has advised that they will work proactively with any interested parties who may want to take on the Post Office service”.
The Council is also aware that the local Area Manager visited Great Torrington on Tuesday 29th September to walk the patch and speak to any suitable retailers about the Post Office opportunity. He will be following up those conversations over the coming weeks.
We will keep the community informed as and when we have further information.
