Indeed.  However, the fact that no consultation has started yet does at least suggest that no significant progress has yet been made in finding an occupant for the site. 
It would cost stockportmbc 2 million pounds to relocate the sorting office due to royal mail having a 99 year lease at cornfields. The council are not prepared to pay this amount as they know they cannot justify it to the tax payers of stockport during these times of austerity.

Is the collection point for CO-OP goods or the aniline retailer AMAZON?

I note that the Coop is already (or, at least, was) a nominated collection point for Amazon deliveries ... which is faintly ironic: a local retailer providing a service for an aniline one; indeed, a service that the Royal Mail sorting office ought to be able to provide anyway.

I guess we will find out in November. The Coop's prices are truly atrocious at the moment.

You can now take returned goods from amazon to four buoys , and I think the antique rose . A lot of it doesn't go back to the post offices . Yodel now do a lot of post not as though I would re comend them . I read some were about this service starting up in one of the papers .there are collection boxes outside Franky's and Benny's stockport  now , ..it's changing weather we like it or not .

Yes why would anyone use such a service when Sainsburys deliver to the door.

I was told by one of the staff that you will be able to order over the internet and call in and collect your order from the new collection point.  This is always supposing that the things you want are in stock, of course!  I will believe it works properly when I see it.   ;)

The work that's going on at the coop is going to be a collection point steel work now up outside .and work going on inside must be worth it to the coop .

Collection point for what . It's like dark ages in coop if you ask anyone . We're not allowed to tell anyone they say ...get a life . No wonder people shop else were .

if it ever does happen, the Postal workers will be amongst the last to be told

Told you all we were going nowhere.
Don't listen to the rumour mill and ask those in the know, yes your postal workers.

To be fair though, if it ever does happen, the Postal workers will be amongst the last to be told - it's not as if they are involved in the decision making process. The first they'll find out is when they are being "consulted" on which alternative base of work they want to be transferred to.

When it comes to multi - million pound schemes Red, a lick of paint is neither here nor there.
