Village Post Office Branches Out
9:01am 5th December 2013
Burton Bradstock's Post Office has undergone a revamp to offer a variety of services.
Not only is it now possible to order worldwide currency on a next day basis, but you can also drop off dry cleaning and collect prescriptions.
The Post Office also sells a selection of local produce and a new range of gifts such as jewellery, pottery and crafts.
Favourites such as local bread, honey, biscuits and Jessica's Cakes are still available.
"We did a survey on what our own customers buy, and what the tourists buy," says Gwen Holdcroft, Postmistress at Burton Bradstock. "We decided to just expand a lot on the local gifts and it's been very successful."
"The locals really like it and they're coming to do their Christmas shopping here, which is terrific!"
