New postal service provider in Port Erin

Mannin Retail Limited to take over in April

Postal services in Port Erin will be delivered by Mannin Retail Limited from Tuesday 2 April.

It follows a procurement process in the area.

The incumbent’s last day of operation will be Thursday 28 March, when the service will shut until after the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Isle of Man Post Office has confirmed the new provider will then resume counter services as well as a parcel collection service at the existing location on Church Road.

The opening hours will be 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday, and 9am - 12:30pm on Saturday.

There will be no change for recipients of Treasury welfare payments who choose to collect their benefits from Port Erin Post Office.

Stu Peters MHK, Chairman of Isle of Man Post Office, said: "We are delighted to welcome Mannin Retail Limited as the new provider in Port Erin and I am confident the residents will be pleased that the location for the post office will remain unchanged. 

"All the services currently offered will continue to be available for our valued customers, and there will be no change for recipients of Treasury welfare payments who choose to collect their benefits from Port Erin Post Office."
