Post offices remain most valued local service
Post offices are still one of the most valued community services according to the annual Association of Convenience Stores (ACS) Community Barometer. The barometer looks at services across key measures like reducing loneliness, how positive an impact they have on the community and how essential they are. Post offices take joint first place alongside convenience stores.
For the first time, the research measures the impact on house prices of different local services, and post offices come out on top. ACS comments that “despite the movement online of many services, it’s striking that consumers are still looking for physical service providers like the Post Office”.
