Stamford Post Office Building Sold Post Office Boxes to Move September 20th

September 18, 2013 @USPS

STAMFORD, CT — The Stamford Post Office, located at 421 Atlantic Street, will close at the end of business on Friday, September 20th as we advance with the sale of the building.

Despite a diligent effort to find a new location, the Postal Service has not yet found a suitable site to house the postal operation. We are committed to continue the search for a viable permanent location to provide Stamford customers with full postal services within the immediate area.

However, for the short term, PO Box customers will be required to pick up their mail at 317 West Avenue in Stamford, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.  The West Avenue location currently offers retail hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday only, but beginning September 28th, retail services will also be available from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday.

Customers picking up their Atlantic Avenue PO Box mail should bring identification.

The Postal Service is working to build appropriate space at 317 West Avenue to provide current Atlantic Street PO Box customers with a new PO Box at that site by late fall or early winter. Those PO boxes will be made available at the West Avenue site until we find a new permanent location to replace the 421 Atlantic Avenue operation. No change of address will be required by any current PO Box customers during this transition.

Retail services are also available at the following nearby locations:

Monday through Friday Saturday

8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
