We would like to thank one and all for your kind words and messages of support after we opened Blaenavon's new Post office within Artie Craftie on Nick's Birthday the best present of all to somebody who simply cares and has the commitment for the World Heritage town of Blaenavon
For the last ten months we have been planning our expansion and in the last two months we have knocked though into our new premises in Broad Street redecorated and made provisions for the Post Office to come into Broad Street for the first time since 1911.
On our first week as Blaenavon's Post Office Mrs Craftie has been very busy posting Blaenavon's mail, .taxing cars, topping up phone, gas and electric cards, taking bill payments , paying pensions and other benefits, doing personal and business banking, lots of cash withdraws and even selling some rod licences for local folk to go fishing..
Artie has been busy putting new stock up on shelves, printing, framing, talking to some excited Mums who have been planning Craftie birthday Parties for their kids, booking in dry cleaning from our new service that we launched this week, buying some new interesting stock for next month. and planning our official opening that will happen in August watch this space for details
Why don't you popin and say hello... we'd love to see you soon
