New Zealand Post/Kiwibank staff who were robbed at gunpoint on Friday afternoon are said to be "traumatised" by the holdup at the Takanini branch.

Police say an unconfirmed number of offenders entered the shop and presented weapons to those behind the counter at around 1:30pm.

One person received minor injuries before the offenders made off with an undisclosed sum of cash, police say.

"This type of incident is absolutely terrifying for staff," NZ Post Kiwibank spokesman Bruce Thompson says.

He says all staff are receiving support, because "this type of thing just doesn't go away".
