New post office shed to cope with online shopping parcels



A large shed is being added to the southern side of the post office building to cope with the increase in mail order posting.


The post office now handles an average of 700 parcels a day, according to a spokeswoman for Australia Post. She  says: “The new structure is part of Australia Post’s investment in its parcels network.


“The new building will be used for the secure storage and management of parcels. The additional space will make it simpler for staff to be able to organise and distribute parcels to customers.


“The growth of ecommerce parcel volumes in Alice Springs, like the rest of the country, has increased over the past five years as more and more Australians are shopping online.”

    Very sad to see this town known for its on-line shopping dominance … no wonder all the shops are closing. My parents always said to me “everything in moderation”, shame this kind of thinking has not been passed on to the next generation.
