The South Antrim MLA said: “This is brilliant news for the community in Parkhall. This Post Office is a thriving business and is one which provides a vital service to people in the area.
“It is the hub of the local community and I am glad to see that Post Office Ltd has finally come to their senses and decided to keep Parkhall open.
“We built a very strong case for saving the business and this victory vindicates our campaign. Council staff, Councillors and local MLAs ran a tight campaign to stop this closure and I am very pleased that the right result has been delivered.”
