About Eccleston Post Office
Eccleston Post Office is an independent Main Post Office based in the village of Eccleston, near Chorley in Lancashire and has been owned and managed by Lisa Laughton since 1987 assisted by the present team of Natalie, Anna, Kelly, Lucy, LeAnne.
When Lisa took over in 1987 the business was very different. The focus was firmly on the Post Office services along with a small selection of stationery and greetings cards and she worked mostly alone. In 1995 the business had outgrown its premises and she decided to relocate to a bigger shop with more parking in the centre of the village; these premises were then redeveloped in 2013 to a more modern and efficient centre.
With more space it was now possible to fully expand the retail offering of the shop, and although the Post Office remains the focus of the business, they are now able to offer their customers an extra shopping experience with a huge selection of cards and gorgeous gifts for every occasion.
Lisa says: “I am always grateful for the support shown to us by customers, not just from Eccleston but also from surrounding areas, which has enabled my business to succeed. I do believe that all Post Offices play a vital role in keeping communities with access to services that would otherwise be lost.”
