NZ Post to close it’s Naenae PostShop and it’s Kiwibank services…

SIMON EDWARD/FAIRFAX NZ

LAST POST: NZ Post sold the distinctive brick 1959 Naenae post office building last year and announced on Friday it would close its Kiwibank branch and franchise out postal services

Naenae in Lower Hutt is to lose its only bank, and NZ Post wants to franchise out its services.

The Kiwibank branch in Hillary Court will close and NZ Post says it has started a search to find another local business to host postal, bill payment and car registration services on its behalf.

MP Chris Hipkins has slammed the decision to pull out the Kiwibank as “heartless” and customers Hutt News spoke to outside the NZ Post branch last week also expressed dismay.

“It’s all very well for NZ Post to say banking services are available online. Many of their customers are elderly residents who aren’t comfortable doing their banking over the internet,” Hipkins said.

“KiwiBank markets itself as ‘ours’ and yet it is increasingly abandoning communities that were forgotten about long ago by the big Aussie banks.
