Dear Sir / Madam,

Re: Letter of Complaint

I would like to make a formal complaint about the poor service at the Postal Office at the corner of Flint and Garner. As I have been regularly using this registered office for many years and was always impressed by the quality of its service, the way it is functioning now is quite shocking for me. Hence, am forced to write this letter to you.

The poor service rendered at this Postal branch has been deplorable since DD/MM/YYYY. The service is very slow as there are usually only two officers to serve an average of 30 public a day. It is even worse when either staff insists on having lunch during the peak lunch hours.

As this postal branch is very familiar with the community, I would like to suggest more workforce be allocated to this branch to serve the community. I have witnessed many patrons leaving the premises in frustration without completing their intended task due to lack of choice.

I shall await your prompt response to my complaint as I frequent this postal branch for my mailing needs.

Thanking you for your time and patience.

Yours sincerely,

Sarah Jane Bailey
