AnneMarriott Posted June 3, 2018 Share Posted June 3, 2018 I have just learned that the Post Office in Eton (actually it's a counter in the local Budgens) has closed "temporarily due to operational reasons". As far as I can tell the operational reasons are that it had never operated properly since it was moved three years ago to Budgens from Eton Stationers, where we enjoyed excellent service for decades. When it moved to Budgens we were promised extended opening hours and additional services. Out of four attempts to carry out a transaction there I succeeded just once, to post a card to Australia. The extended opening hours remained a pipe dream, ("we're trying to work towards it", said the manager) the computer crashed and "there's no-one who knows how to do that" were reasons for the three unsuccessful attempts. The post office in Datchet is now closed for the second time in three years. The one in London Road Langley closed months ago and there's no sign of a replacement. So now residents of Eton have the choice of Windsor, Eton Wick or Slough High Street. None of them far but only Windsor is walking distance and only that for the very fit. Public transport thin on the ground and parking a nightmare everywhere. Not happy! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
