A "THRIVING" Post Office branch in Tyldesley town centre is up for sale.

The outlet at The Square, which is a former bank property and includes a shop, is on the market for £85,000.

It is hoped a buyer will be found to ensure it remains as a Post Office.

The store, which includes a passport photo booth, sells stationery, cards, toys and confectionery.
