Damage caused by flooding has forced the temporary closure of the Cheshire Post Office at 27071 Highway 36, U.S. Postal Service officials have announced.
“We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers in Cheshire,” said USPS Manager of Post Office Operations Skip Weaver. “We are asking postal customers to visit the Junction City Post Office at 669 Greenwood Ave. in Junction City to obtain their P.O. Box mail or to purchase stamps and other postage or services.”
The length of time the Cheshire Post Office will be closed as a result of the flood damage is unknown at this time, Weaver noted. He added that no mail inside the Cheshire Post Office was damaged by the flooding. Carrier mail delivery to Cheshire residents is not affected, though customers picking up packages or items requiring a signature will need to visit the Junction City Post Office.
The Junction City Post Office is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. The phone number for customers with questions is 541-998-2869.
Customers are reminded that stamps and package postage and address labels may be purchased online 24 hours a day at usps.com.
