Trying to make sense of what’s happening here. Beeston Post Office seems very well patronised and has recently been fully refurbished.
Relevant abstracts from the media reports seem to be:-
Branches on the list are not sustainable for various reasons.
We are seeking suitable potential retail partners to work with us on providing franchised services for 39 branches and we are proposing to close three branches in areas where it is no longer viable to keep a Crown Branch.

The potential closure of the Beeston Post Office in Chilwell Road to move it into a shop has worried some residents.
Peter Lawton, who has lived in the area for 84 years, said it “will be missed” and moving it would greatly affect pensioners in the area.
Kate Pearson, who is disabled and struggles with walking, currently lives just a few yards away and worries that if it goes too far she may have to get a taxi just to post a letter.
