phoney, the walk to London Bridge may do YOU good, but not everyone will feel the same. I'm just sorry that,walk or not, this rather spendid building will be turned into another block of flats/offices, or, worse, torn down for a 50 storey tower.
I, too, am very upset that this excellent Post Office is closing and have done my bit with the Petition etc.
It is, by far, the best PO I have ever known, during my 40 years in London. The Customer Service is par excellence and it is rare to queue for longer than 10 minutes on the busiest of days.
London Bridge is only a five minute walk away - and I have one even nearer than Borough - but I generally walk up there, because I like the service. What a positive difference Good Service can make to one's day :P
I don't quite understand that in these days of eBay, internet shopping and mail order why post offices are closing. I would have thought at least keeping them open or at best expanding would be a more appropriate route, particularly as PO's can be incorporated within shops, giving the franchisees more footfall and customers a PO within walking distance from home/work.
On a related note, is there somewhere to buy stamps besides at the Post Office? I went into the one near London Bridge twice and was met with a line of 35+ people each time. I finally bit the bullet yesterday at the one near Trafalgar Square, where there were even more people. Twenty minutes in line to buy a couple of stamps. Why are there no stamp machines in the post offices?
