Over 20 Post Offices in Glasgow are introducing an option for customers to send parcels with Evri.

The new service will allow people to choose their parcel carrier over the counter in each of the branches and send, collect and return packages at an in-store Evri ParcelShop. 

For the first time, Evri customers will be able to hand a parcel directly to a Post Office team member to enter address details and apply a label, rather than using a self-service device.

The service will be introduced as of Friday, December 1 at the following Post Offices:

  • Hyndland
  • Burnham Terrace
  • Carntyne
  • Newlands
  • Ruchazie
  • Nitshill
  • Gorbals
  • Wellhouse
  • Scotstounhill
  • Garscadden Road
  • Royston Rd
  • Drumbottie Road
  • Possilpark
  • Scaraway Street
  • Lochend Road
  • Barrhead Road
  • Sandyford
  • Bellahouston
  • Duke Street
  • Craigpark
  • Kings Park
  • Broomton Road
  • Carmyle
  • Knightswood

Evri has also announced the last dates for sending a parcel with Evri for delivery before Christmas:

The last day for courier collection is Tuesday, December 19

The last day for standard delivery from a ParcelShop is Wednesday, December 20 by 11am.

The last day for next-day delivery from a ParcelShop is Thursday, December 21 by 11am.

It is hoped the service will also encourage people to return to their local high street and reduce the environmental impact of vans making multiple stops to drop off parcels. 

David Saenz, chief growth officer at Evri, said: “We’re pleased to give local people more choice and convenience when sending a parcel.

"Whether you’re sending a Christmas gift to a loved one or selling second-hand items online, we’re committed to delivering a high-quality, cost-effective, and reliable service with great quality benefits such as tracking as standard and giving consumers yet another reason to keep using Post Offices, so they remain at the heart of our communities.”
