The mayor of Esch-sur-Alzette, Georges Mischo, confirmed the rumour to the newspaper 'Tageblatt' on Wednesday during the presentation of the budget.

Post Luxembourg will close its branches in Lallange and rue de Belvaux for good.

In Lallange, the building that used to house the branch belongs to the municipality. The municipal council will invest €100,000 to create an office that will deal with social issues faced by the elderly.

In addition to the Post outlets, only the large building with the counters located in the city centre will remain in Esch.
