The long wait for the reopening of the Montego Bay Number One Post Office, located along Meagre Bay Road, is now over. The post office reopened on Monday, March 2, after closing for more than a year for refurbishing.
The closure of the post office made it inconvenient for some, especially the elderly, to collect their pensions. Jean, who uses the post office regularly, was glad for the reopening. “I was so disappointed to walk go all the way up to Clock at the Number Two Post Office to collect a mail, so I’m so glad for the reopening of the Number One Post Office. The place is clean and have air condition, and stairs for the disabled. I want to thank the people who all came together and fix up this place so nice,” said Jean.
Branch Manager for the Number One Post Office, Simone Grant Durrant, was on hand to open the doors to the public. “Well, as you can see, the people are congratulating us as staff for the wonderful job we have done to bring this post office to a top-class one. It can be more convenient to the pensioners now, who usually have to go all the way to the Number Two Post Office to do their business, which is about a mile away. Many people can also have easy access to pay their utility bills at the post office.”
