Post office closing over post office outlet over marketing
(see update below)
The blog though it would be fair and reasonable to post the reasons Canada Post wanted to close down the Junction Gardens Post office. Starting with a real person search of their website and then a Google “site” search, nothing turned up, no press releases, no publicly available statements or plans. A telephone call was made and after 20 minutes on hold we were told a question such as this must be made though their online contact us form and they would reply within one to two business days.
Which has been done yet, why should a simple question about were to find information about an impending closure of a community post office not be addressed on their site or though a wider public communication such as newspaper ads?
…we did find a lot of the subject at the Canadian Union of Postal Workers site

…just got an update from Canada Post regarding the closure.
The store is closing the end of October, no new outlet is opening and the service is moving to the already existing outlet at the Shopper Drug Mart at Keele and St. Clair.
I was told the issue is the store “is too narrow to fit the new image”. The customer service rep went on to explained that Canada Post is implementing a Canada wide marketing effort called “New Maple” and the store simply doesn’t fit the display panels.
I can’t believe we’re loosing our post office outlet over marketing!
