Future Wolverton is hugely concerned at the decision to close the Co-op and Post Office in April.
The Co-op has told us that they have been unable to secure a new lease agreement from the owners of the Agora, which leaves them unable to continue operating the store in Wolverton. They have also said that should there be an opportunity to return to Wolverton in the future they would actively consider doing so.
The Post Office is run as a franchise operation by the Co-op. The Co-op gave notice to the Post Office that they wished to end the franchise arrangement over a year ago.
Future Wolverton have been working with the Post Office since this time to try and identify a local business who might be interested in taking on the franchise. To-date this has been unsuccessful.
