Cost-cutting measures looked at

An end to post on Saturdays could be in sight as part of a new cost-cutting plan at the Isle of Man Post Office.

The board is looking to save money as it prepares to record its first ever annual loss.

Shrinking mail bags and an annual 7% decrease in customers visiting their local post office is being blamed for the fall in revenue.

Now the Isle of Man Post Office is putting the finishing touches to its latest five year strategy, due to be published in the Autumn.

Among the ideas put forward in a new public consultation are increasing the price of postage stamps, and increased use of electronic self-service kiosks.

While letter delivery days could be cut from six days to five days per week, parcel delivery days would remain Monday-Saturday - with the possibility of even making the service seven days a week.

Residents are also being asked if they would be happy to see any more of the Island's 27 branches close down.

You can take the new consultation yourself via consult.gov.im before 2 October.
