IF YOU were attracted by an advertisement in the NewsMail on Thursday promoting parcel lockers where you can collect parcels 24/7 it might be a good idea to dampen down your excitement.

There are no plans to introduce them in Bundaberg, according to an Australia Post spokeswoman.

"We're rolling out some to sites that we've earmarked, but Bundaberg is not one of them," she said.

She said the ad was just highlighting some of the changes at Australia Post.

The advertisement said many Australians were receiving more parcels and fewer letters these days.

This was why Australia Post was investing in a new future for post offices and delivery services around Australia.

But not in Bundaberg.

However, post offices under Australia Post management, such as the one in Bundaberg's CBD, will be opening on Saturdays from the Christmas period this year.

The spokeswoman said some of the post offices that were not managed by Australia Post might be opening on Saturdays now.

One of the benefits in the advertisement was a free MyPost Digital Mailbox to complement customers' regular letterbox, which was available to all Australians.

The service, according to Australia Post, would provide a safe, private online mailbox where people could receive mail, digital receipts, pay bills and store important documents.

It is a free service providing 1GB of personal document storage.

People will be able to control who sends them mail and avoid spam or phishing emails.
