The Post Office says it is looking for a new operator for a counter service in the Great Dover Street area after the closure of the McColl's convenience store.
Although the Post Office service was due to continue until Sunday 10 December, the counter had already closed when SE1's reporter visited on Saturday lunchtime.
In a notice displayed in the shop, Post Office Ltd said: "We are looking to restore a Post Office service in this area, as soon as possible."
