In its continuing effort to relocate post offices to a more convenient location to better serve the public, the Philippine Postal Corporation opened a branch located at 3rd Level, Government Service Express (GSE), Rizal Street, Reclamation Area, SM Bacolod City, 6100 Negros Occidental.
On hand to formally open the post office were Regional Postal Area 6-Director Donabel Asuncion; acting Support Service Manager Atty. Stevenson Conlu; postmaster Rinald Rosadia; Ronald Vilches, cashier and in charge of SM Bacolod Tellering; George Jadriolin, mall manager, SM City Bacolod; Julia Javellana, assistant mall manager; Van Sombito, property manager; Enzo Benedicto, building admin manager; May Castro, public relations manager; and Glen Sazon, CRS manager.
“I would like to thank SM, one of the largest and most extensive over-the-counter one-stop shops for government services in the country, for giving us the opportunity to bring post office services closer to the public,” postmaster general Norman Fulgencio said.
He added, “I believe the post office can do so much in bringing daily convenience in the lives of the Filipinos by means of this partnership with SM Supermalls on government-private sector collaboration in order to expand its accessibility by bringing the post office closer to the community.”
“The post office today is way faster, more reliable, convenient, and innovative than it ever was in decades. In an effort to digitize and modernize the services of the Philippine Post Office, we launched early this year a new range of innovations to improve the operations and delivery of the country’s postal system”, he said.
Asuncion said that shoppers will be able to conveniently and quickly mail letters and express packages, buy stamps and other philatelic products, apply for Postal ID, and send electronic Postal Money Orders, postal cards, and so much more.*
