Breaking News ! A Post Office has been saved from closure after owners of a nearby shop stepped in at the eleventh hour. Marian Square Post Office closed temporarily in December 2020 after its operator resigned. The mail centre was housed within a McColl’s store, which ceased trading during the pandemic. McColl’s said it was a “difficult decision” to close the store, and that it is “delighted” the Post Office has been saved. Card and gift shop Cardarama, which has been trading in Marian Square in Bootle for 14 years, has now stepped in to save the Post Office, by taking over the double unit, meaning they can offer a wide range of services to customers. Cardarama saved the Post Office in the eleventh hour Owner Ian Coughlin told the ECHO : “When we heard about the Post Office closing we, like many others, were devastated. “It’s the hub of the community and we knew we had to do something to save this local asset.” Cardarama will house the Post Office, as well as selling newspapers and confectionery, and other essential services such as Paypoint.
