Postal Service plans to consolidate Redlands Main Post Office with nearby Redlands-Lugonia Station

March 02, 2012 @USPSstamps


REDLANDS — A close evaluation and analysis of local real estate holdings and work space requirements by the U.S. Postal Service’s San Diego District has identified the Redlands Main Post Office at 201 Brookside Avenue as a valuable asset whose potential sale would generate much needed capital for the Postal Service.

Within the process of Facility Optimization the Redlands Main Post Office will be consolidated with the Redlands-Lugonia Station which is located within 1 mile of the main office.

P.O. Box customers will be able to choose to move their P.O. Box to the Redlands-Lugonia Station or any other Post Office with available boxes.

The Postal Service has experienced a 25 percent decline in First-Class Mail volume since 2006, and receives no tax dollars for its operations, relying instead on the sale of postage, postal products and services.

The Postal Service has undertaken a number of initiatives to reduce costs and address its financial challenges. As part of those efforts, the Postal Service believes it can reduce costs considerably by liquidating certain high-value properties and consolidating operations.

The Postal Service has retained the real estate professionals of CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) to handle the real estate transactions.
