The national Sunday opening initiative is designed to make it easier for online shoppers not at home during the day, to get their parcels at a convenient time over the weekend.

Royal Mail’s 1,200 delivery offices are currently open six days a week and around half of its customer service points are open later on Wednesday evenings, for customers to collect or drop off items.

In addition, around 100 of its busiest offices are also already open on Sundays.

Royal Mail recently announced it is opening up its network of Delivery Office - where there is a Customer Service Point - as a drop off points for customers sending stamped parcels and letters within the UK.

Mike Newnham, Royal Mail’s Chief Customer Officer, said: “We are continuing to be more responsive to our customers and are providing even more options for people to receive items they have ordered online.

“Our extended opening hours initiative and additional Sunday openings 
is just one of the ways we 
are transforming our business to be more customer focused.”
