ITS location has changed but Harlaxton Post Office customers will still find a familiar face waiting to help them with their postal needs.

Harlaxton Post Office manager Jones Wong said some customers were confused about the shop's location after it was relocated from the intersection of Ruthven and Gregory Sts earlier this month.

It now operates from within the Blue Mountain FoodWorks supermarket, a little further north on Ruthven St at the intersection of Griffiths St.

Mr Wong became involved in post shops through his brother Raymond, who together with wife Catherine, owned the Harlaxton Post Office for more than four years.

New owner Debbie Smith moved the shop into her FoodWorks supermarket.

"The opportunity was there and it was something I was familiar with," Mr Wong said

"I see a lot of good potential for this place."

Mr Wong said the post office offered the same services in its new location.

"A lot of our regular customers used to frequent both places so it is more convenient for them."
