April 30, 2012 @USPS

SUNNYVALE, CA — The Sunnyvale Main Post Office will cease operations at its current leased location (580 N. Mary Ave., Sunnyvale, CA 94088) on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at 1 p.m. and all retail and P.O. Box operations will move to a new location at 209 E. Java Drive, Sunnyvale, CA. The new E. Java location will be open for business on Monday, June 4, 2012 at 8:30 a.m.

“This relocation will not impact any customer’s P.O. Box number or size of the box, and there will be no ZIP Code change,” said Sunnyvale Postmaster John Silverberg. “Aside from the new location, this move will be transparent to our customers and will have no impact on mail delivery by letter carriers to businesses and residents.”

In order to facilitate the move, P.O. Box mail will not be accessible from noon on June 2, 2012 to 8:30 a.m. on June 4, 2012. Customers should note the following additional important Information:

  • If a customer needs their P.O. Box mail the weekend of the move it must be retrieved from the 580 N Mary Ave. location prior to noon, June 2, 2012.
  • Any mail not retrieved prior to the move will be transported and placed in the customers P.O. Box at the 209 East Java Drive location and will be available after 8:30 a.m. on June 4, 2012.
  • After 8:30 a.m. on June 4, 2012 customers must go to the 209 East Java Drive location to retrieve their P.O. Box mail.

Additionally, customers in the following ZIP Codes should note the changes in where they will pick up vacation hold mail and mail for which they have been left a notice:

  • Effective May 21, 2012, customers in ZIP Code 94085 will pick up vacation hold and notice-left mail at Encinal Station, 526 W Freemont Ave., Sunnyvale.
  • Effective June 4, 2012, customers in ZIP Codes 94086 and 94089 will pick up vacation hold and notice-left mail at the new Main Post Office on E. Java Drive.
  • Effective June 4, 2012, customers in ZIP Code 94087 will pick up vacation hold mail at the Main Post Office on E. Java and will continue to pick up notice-left mail at the Encinal Station.

The current Sunnyvale Main Post Office is a leased building. The lease was due to expire on Feb. 29, 2016, which prompted a search for the new location. “Our new Sunnyvale Main Post Office on E. Java Drive will provide the Sunnyvale community a modern, attractive retail facility,” Silverberg said.
