Although not in Edgbaston Ward, the Crown Post Office in Harborne High Street is used by many Edgbaston Ward residents.
As part of a programme which the Post Office call “branch modernisation”, the Harborne High Street Post Office will close and will in future be located inside W H Smiths under a franchise agreement. The new location is approx 70 metres away from the current Crown Post Office.
The current office will close at 5.30pm on Wednesday 23rd November 2016, and will re-open in Smiths at 9.00am on Thursday 24th November. The new branch will be open from 9.00am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday and from 11.00am to 3.00pm on Sundays. So the opening hours will be longer, although the Post Office will no longer be in its own dedicated premises. The new premises will have four serving positions in total plus two self service kiosks.
