The Scottish Grocers Federation is urging the Post Office to change its policy on cashpoint machines. SGF chief executive Scott Landsburgh, Aberness retail director Graeme Hay, Botterills md Jim Botterill and Morning Noon & Night development director Fraser Mackay are scheduled to meet Post Office reprentatives by the end of November to push for a revamp of policy. Under the current system, ATM machines in sub post offices must be supplied by the Post Office's preferred partner, clearing bank Alliance and Leicester. If Alliance and Leicester is unable to accomodate, independent cashpoint supplier TRM is the other option. Landsburgh said: "We are going to meet Post Office Counters director of operations Jim King to make the Post Office aware the current system is substantially to its detriment. With these policy edicts it is stopping entrepreneurs from flourishing. " MN&N founder Eddie Thompson said: "We have an agreement with the Bank of Scotland to install cashpoint machines at our stores. "When we look at sites for potential acquistion, having a sub post office may be a disadvantage as we are not allowed to put in a lucrative ATM." {{NEWS }}
