The biggest parcel locker in Northern Finland will open on Monday, August 30, 2021, in Ideapark Oulu. The Posti Parcel Locker, called OmaPosti kiosk, has 830 individual lockers. The space also has self-service terminals for sending parcels and letters.
Posti Parcel Locker is the most popular way in Finland to receive items, and the number of parcels delivered via Posti Parcel Lockers is rising: in January–June, the number grew by 47% compared to last year.
“We have received many requests from customers regarding postal services in Oulu. As e-commerce continues to grow, we believe that customers living nearby will be happy to see the opening of the new big Posti Parcel Locker, which will nearly double Posti’s parcel locker capacity in North Oulu. Next to the OmaPosti kiosk, we have also reserved a space that we can use to open a temporary pickup point during the peak seasons for parcels,” says Sauli Metsävirta, an Area Manager at Posti.
The OmaPosti kiosk will serve customers next to Tokmanni in shopping mall Ideapark Oulu, at Ritaharjuntie 49 A, 90540 Oulu. The kiosk is a self-service area that is open during Ideapark’s opening hours (Mon–Fri 10 a.m.–8 p.m., Sat 10 a.m.–6 p.m., Sun 12 noon–6 p.m.). Customers can use a video connection to get in touch with a Posti customer service representative, who can give advice about any matter related to postal services.
Local residents will receive letters containing more detailed information about this change in the next few weeks.
Posti’s retail network in Oulu currently consists of 67 service points. There are public Posti Parcel Lockers at 55 locations, including K-Citymarket Raksila and Prisma Linnanmaa.
