THE Post Box in Prestwick is to move premises to Main Street, it has been announced.

Owners Stephen and Cherlene Cooper announced last week on Facebook that the post office and the gift shop will move to a larger building opposite the Taj restaurant.

Stephen told the Advertiser that they plan to move the post office into the new premises later in the year. The gift shop is set to move from The Cross next month and be rebranded ‘Daisy Chain’.

Stephen and Cherlene said: “With the loss of three banks already in Prestwick, this really highlights how important it is that people use local services and businesses, or they will close.

“To ensure a long-term future of our family business and post office services in Prestwick, we have therefore decided to relocate and expand.”
