A new post office for Tooting

Cllr Akinola, who is also cabinet member for the voluntary sector, business engagement and culture, said she was delighted the new branch was now open in Mitcham Lane, after it opened its doors to customers for the first time on Tuesday.

She described the branch’s openings as “great news for Tooting”.

The new Post Office is open at CBs Shipping Services Limited at 85 Mitcham Lane. It is open seven days a week offering a wide range of public services.

It restores Post Office services to this part of Tooting after the previous branch at 116 Mitcham Lane closed in December 2019.

Cllr Akinola said: “This is a very welcome development and restores some vital community services to the area after an absence of nearly three years.

“Many residents and businesses rely on having a local Post Office able to meet their needs, so this new branch opening in Mitcham Lane is great news for our community.”

The opening hours are Monday to Saturday: 9am – 5pm; Sunday 9am – 2pm.

Sam Coe, Post Office Network Provision Lead said: “We are delighted to have restored a Post Office to this area as we know how important a Post Office is to a community. The branch being open seven days a week will make it convenient for customers to visit.”
