A DELIVERY office will be open on Sundays from this weekend.

Basildon Delivery Office is one of 100 across the country piloting Sunday openings to allow people to collect their parcels.

It is hoped the move will help customers, who are not around during the week.

The delivery office, in East Square, will be open from noon to 4pm.

Tony Fox, operations director, said: “We are continuing to be more customer responsive and provide more options for people to receive items they have ordered online.

“I am delighted to pilot Sunday afternoon opening at around 100 of our delivery offices across the UK with the highest parcel volumes, including Basildon.”
