Customers in St Combs can now lick their ice-creams and postage stamps at the same time thanks to the opening of the new post office service.
The new service in Buchans Ices, Mid Street, St Combs, will be officially opened today (August 20 2010) by Banff and Buchan MP, Eilidh Whiteford. The MP will be able to watch as customers post parcels while ordering their ice cream cones in the new venture.
Dr Whiteford said:
“I know that there were some concerns when the previous branch closed, and this new service will be a real boost for residents of St Combs, safeguarding services in the area.
“I am delighted that Buchan Ices has been appointed and I would like to wish them and Fiona every success in their new venture.”
Local woman, Fiona Thomson, who will run the service, said:
“We offer a wide range of post office services and our customers are enjoying a first class service and we would like to thank them for all the support they have shown us so far.”
Kenny Lamont, Field Change Advisor for Post Office Limited, said:
"I am absolutely delighted that we have been able to re-open a Post Office service in St Combs. Post Office services are extremely important for the community and this service is a vital asset to the local area.”
