Arduthie Post Office and store will be temporarily closed next year for a refurbishment.

Due to extensive building work Arduthie Post Office at Kirkton Road, Stonehaven, AB39 2NQ, will be temporarily closed from Saturday 6 January at 12.30pm with the branch due to re-open on Thursday 22 February at 9am.

During the major seven-week project alternative branches will include:

  • Stonehaven Outreach Post Office, 17 – 21 Evan Street, Stonehaven, AB39 2EQ
  • Newtonhill Outreach Post Office, Newtonhill Pharmacy, 1 Skateraw Road, Newtonhill, AB39 3PU

Stonehaven is close by. Both Stonehaven and Newtonhill are part-time branches, whereas, Portlethen is a full-time branch open daily 7am – 10pm. See notes to editors for further information.

The retail store is changing ownership. When it re-opens it will continue to offer the same Post Office products and services, over longer hours.

The new opening hours will be:  Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm; Saturday: 9am – 12.30pm. Arduthie Post Office will no longer close at lunchtime.

Daniel Rooney, Post Office Partner Account Manager, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our customers during the work.  The safety of our customers is of paramount, therefore, to allow for the building work to take place, it was necessary for the service to close temporarily. Afterwards customers will benefit from the Post Office being open longer hours and in a refurbished store.”
