Simon Danczuk gave his stamp of approval to a new Post Office which is really delivering for local people.
The Rochdale MP cut the ribbon to officially declare the newly refurbished Post Office at the Bargain Booze in Oldham Road open for business.
The work took just one week to complete and will allow the Post Office to offer a much wider range of services including processing car tax payments and exchanging foreign currency.
Owner Jay Patel said: “We knew that having a Post Office was important to local people but we didn’t realise how important until we closed for a week.
“Everyone has said how relieved they are that we are back open and now we will be able to do even more for local people by offering these services.”
Mr Danczuk said: “Businesses like Jay’s are the backbone of the community in Rochdale.
“The refurbished facilities are really top quality. Customers no longer have to travel as there is a first class Post Office right on their doorstep.”
