Fisherville Post Office to Reopen Thursday

Spiders no longer present

October 31, 2018 @USPS

FISHERVILLE, KY — Halloween is almost over and there is no more fun for brown recluse spiders at the Fisherville KY Post Office. 

The post office will reopen on Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018.  Hours of operation are 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday thru Friday.  Saturday hours are 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The Fisherville Post Office operations were temporarily suspended in August after brown recluse spiders were detected during a regular inspection by an exterminator.  During the suspension, professional extermination treatments and testing continued until no signs of the spiders remained.

Customers were encouraged to register for Informed Delivery as a convenience during the suspension.  Informed Delivery allows residential customers to view digital images of their letter mail via a daily text or email.  More information is available at
