Post Office branches were part of the General Post Office group, alongside the Royal Mail, for an impressive 300 years until the group dissolved in 1969. Post Office Counters Ltd was created in 1986 and shortened its name to just Post Office in 2001. Still delivering fine service for urban and rural customers alike, of the 11,500 post offices in the UK a whopping 300 are managed by Post Office Ltd. Initially just a mail service, they expanded their involvement in communities with branch banking, including cash withdrawals and cheque balances, as well as general financial services like insurance policies (for people and their pets), credit cards and mortgages. And now with identity services and foreign currency exchanges available - the Post Office has become the multi-faceted and multi-functional brand that we know and love to this day.
As a state-owned company, Post Office is a testament to Britain’s community spirit and a strong relationship between the people and the services they both rely on and take pride in. A proud badge of British culture, the Post Office has been part of an establishment that has contributed to communities for over 300 years, and still going strong.
