Village Stores & Post Office

The Village Stores are open as usual despite the roadworks in the village. Please do call in!

The stores are situated in the centre of the village, close by the Church and Bell Inn. Following a change of ownership in June 2007, the interior has been completely modernised. A substantial range of groceries with local fresh bread, fruit and vegetables are stocked, together with a delicatessen, soft drinks, milk and dairy produce. A wide range of wines, spirits, beers and cigarettes are available plus your lottery ticket and scratch cards. A good selection of newspapers, magazines and sweets are also stocked.

OPENING HOURS:

  • Monday to Friday: 7a.m. —6 p.m.
  • Saturday: 7 a.m. —5 p.m.
  • Sunday 7 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Post Office

The Post Office is housed in the village shop. It offers a wide range of post office services including cheque encashments; cheque and cash paying in; foreign currency by 24 hour ordering; mobile phone topups; plus standard services including bill paying, for example your telephone, gas, electricity and council tax.

The Post Office was recently saved from closure following a strong campaign from villagers and our local MP, James Gray, who commented:

“I am delighted that Post Office Ltd have wisely decided to change their stance on the future of Yatton Keynell Post Office and that to all intents and purposes, the future of the branch has been secured,”

“I have received a letter from Tim Nickolls, Network Development Manager at Post Office Ltd., stating that a service called ‘Post Office Essentials’ will be provided at Yatton Keynell Post Office, which the subpostmaster has welcomed,” said Mr Gray.

“I am quite sure that Post Office Ltd have changed their minds about the branch as a result of the widespread public outrage at their initial plans to close the branch altogether or offer a very limited ‘Outreach’ service.”

“Public pressure has won the day, and although the ‘Post Office Essentials’ service will offer a slightly reduced range of transactions than a Post Office branch, my constituents will still be able to take advantage of a wide variety of services, including automated banking, bill and budget payment schemes, Post Office Card Account, Postal Orders and postage and so on. This is a very welcome outcome.”

  • Monday to Friday: 9 a.m. — 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. — 5.30 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9 a.m. — 1 p.m.
  • Sunday: Closed (but Village Store open)
