A VILLAGE post office has been closed and is not expected to re-open again until the end of September.
The convenience store One Stop Shop where it is based in High Street, Northchurch, is being turned into a Tesco Express.
The new store will be bigger, as it will also include the vacant Threshers off-licence next door to the One Stop Shop. The One Stop Shop and its post office closed to the public at 12.30pm on Saturday.
Post Office spokesman Val Antoine said: “We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to our customers.”
A free shuttle bus service will take customers to Berkhamsted High Street post office while the Northchurch one is closed, she said.
Its operating times will be put on a poster in the shop window, she said.
