A NEW location and longer opening hours are proposed for Rothes Post Office.
Opening hours of the Speyside branch would more than double to 110 hours per week and the service would be open seven days a week.
The Post Office is proposing to move Rothes Post Office from its current location to create a modern open-plan local-style branch with extended opening hours.
The proposed new location for the branch is McColls, 16-18 New Street, Rothes, which is 130 metres from its current site in Seafield Square.
Customers are now asked for their views during a six week consultation.
The new branch would open from 6am to 10pm, Monday to Saturday and 8am to 10pm on a Sunday.
Post Office Regional Network Manager for Scotland and Northern England Suzanne Richardson said: "We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Rothes and we are confident that this new modern branch will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.
"The proposed changes to the branch are part of a major investment programme to convert the Post Office network to new-style branches and this investment, the largest in the history of the Post Office, marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes."
