The contract for Ballyhaunis Post Office is currently being advertised.
The contract is currently vacant and is being advertised on www.anpost.ie and will be advertised for the next three weeks or so.
A spokesperson for An Post told Midwest News today that a decision will then be made on the post office.
The spokesperson says when a new contractor is appointed, in could result in the post office being re-located from its standalone location on Bridge Street in the town, to co-locate with another centrally located premises.
This has happened in a number of locations nationwide. However the An Post spokesperson stressed that no decision has been taken as of yet, and will not be until the period of advertising the contract is up.
