Owner Steve Burley has lived on the Kapiti Coast for quite a number of years, but is planning to move to Taupo where he already has property and another business. The Mahara Place Postshop is now the last full service postshop in Kapiti (including being open on Saturday mornings) and Steve wants it to stay as such.

With the other banks slowly withdrawing services and reducing hours, the accompanying KiwiBank branch may soon be the last operating bank in Waikanae in the next year or two also.

Steve tells us he has already had buyer interest, however, “it requires the right buyer and I’m very fussy.”
