I wrote recently about the forthcoming closure of the Australia Post office shop on Brunswick St, and a commenter noted that the Gertrude St post office shop already appears to have closed. Now I have learned where the new one is opening – in the former rug shop in the old hotel on the corner of Gertrude St and Brunswick St diagonally opposite the Newtown Workers’ Club. Will Australia Post’s cost cutting and consequent decreases in customer service result in the two post office shops being merged into one? I hypothesise that this is the replacement for both the Gertrude St and Brunswick St shops.
When I went past last night it looks like it is yet to open, with shelves still being stocked.
