Grand Island, NE – The U.S. Postal Service announces its Grand Island Main Post Office at 204 W South Front Street will relocate to a postal-owned facility at 3835 Old Potash Highway, which is scheduled to open for business on Monday, July 2nd. Retail hours will remain the same – 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
The new location will feature two retail windows, 27 customer parking spaces, a drive-through mail drop, more than 1,200 Post Office Boxes, and 78 parcel lockers for Post Office Box customers to use in picking up packages without going to the retail counter (increased from the current location).
While the retail portion of the South Front Street Post Office will close at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 29th Post Office Box customers will be able to pick up their mail through noon, that day. After that time Post Office Box mail won’t be available to pick up until the new location opens at 8 a.m., Monday, July 2nd. Customers will have already received the keys to their new Post Office Boxes. Customers must bring their old Post Office Box key(s) to place in their new Post Office Box for return when they begin picking up mail at the new location.
“We look forward to serving the community from our new location,” said Grand Island Postmaster Tom O’Connor. “They will continue to use the same Post Office Box number and address, and the same dedicated employees who served them on South Front Street will be at the new location.”
Mail delivery will not be impacted, although delivery customers who receive a notice for pickup of a package or letter requiring a signature will pick them up at the new location beginning July 2nd.
O’Connor reminds customers of Webb Plaza retail station located at 2418 N. Webb Rd. STE J, Grand Island, NE 68803 and a full-service, contract Post Office: Hy-Vee at 115 Wilmar NE, Grand Island, NE 68803. Customers can locate alternate businesses where they can purchase stamps by logging into usps.com and searching “Find a Location”. There’s also Stamps By Mail (ask your carrier for a form), Stamps By Phone 1-800-STAMP-24 (1-800-782-6724), and the 24/7 online Post Office at usps.com where customers can buy stamps, change their address, print postage-paid shipping labels at a discount and request a Free Package Pickup.
Relocating the Main Post Office to the postal-owned facility on Old Potash Highway will allow the Postal Service to save money while continuing to serve the community.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
