As of Friday, 1 October 2021, the post office located in Building 500 on the Meyrin site will move to the Kiosk operated by Novae, opposite the current branch, which will close permanently. The new office will take the form of a partner branch in the Kiosk, a system that eliminates certain constraints while maintaining an equivalent level of postal services and allowing customers to simultaneously access services provided by the Kiosk.

The vast majority of postal services will still be offered at the new postal branch at the Kiosk, including sending letters and parcels abroad, buying stamps and making withdrawals with the PostFinance card or payments with any debit card. In addition, the convenient opening hours will facilitate your operations – the branch will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Monday to Friday, just like the Kiosk.

This organisational change was prompted by a continuing decline in business volume due to a shift in consumer habits towards digital transactions. The new model of partnered branches, which exists at more than 1200 locations throughout Switzerland, will be better suited to these new practices. The staff of the current post office will be relocated to another post office in the region.

The current CERN postal branch will remain open until Wednesday, 29 September 2021.
