Worthing WHSmith may not be able to handle volume of customers after Post Office move

Regarding the plan to move Worthing’s Post Office counter to WHSmith (Herald page 4 & online), I do not think this is a good idea at all.

Worthing Post Office is always busy, with queues outside the door sometimes, especially at Christmas.

I cannot see WHSmith being able to handle the volume of customers, even with reorganization of the store.

It is also much easier to park where the post office is now.

If the sorting office is to stay there, as is promised at the moment, why move the post office?

Maybe the plan is to move the Post Office and then move the sorting office at a later date, which will mean Worthing residents will have to travel further afield to collect their parcels?
