From today, 10 Post Office branches in Bedford will let customers send parcels with courier, Evri, just in time for Christmas.

For the first time in the Post Office’s 360-year history, customers can choose their parcel carrier over the counter. Evri customers can now hand a parcel directly to Post Office staff who will enter address details and apply a label, rather than using a self-service device. David Saenz, chief growth officer at Evri, said: “We’re pleased to give local people more choice and convenience when sending a parcel.”

The locations that you can ship with Evri are:

BEDFORD: Queens Drive, 108-112 Queens Drive, MK41 9BS; London Road, 219 London Rd, MK42 0PY; Putnoe Street, 14 Library Walk, MK41 8HF
