USPS Advising Customers of New Jonesboro ZIP Code – 72405
Effective July 1, 2019
JONESBORO, AR — The United States Postal Service is committed to providing our customers with excellent service. Due to rapid growth in the Jonesboro area, it has become necessary to add another ZIP Code to help us efficiently distribute and deliver mail to our customers. There will be changes to ZIP Code 72401, and a new ZIP Code, 72405, will be implemented to allow the Postal Service to maintain its quality of service and provide our customers with mail delivery that is both prompt and accurate.
The addition of the new ZIP Code in Jonesboro (72405) will become effective July 1, 2019, and affect approximately 6,379 residential and 108 business delivery addresses.
Postal customers affected by this change have been notified by mail. Customers are asked to do the following after the July 1 effective date:
- Utilize the new ZIP Code on all outgoing mail.
- Notify the individuals with whom you regularly correspond with as soon as possible (i.e. family, friends, business, etc.).
- Most mailings have a section where the customer can indicate their corrected or new address; however, “Notification cards for Correspondents and Businesses” will be available at your local Post Office.
- You can continue to use your existing stationery and mailing supplies; but when you reorder, please use the new ZIP Code.
The Postal Service apologizes for any inconvenience this change may cause. We want our customers to understand that these changes are essential for us to provide the kind of outstanding mail delivery they deserve. The Postal Service will ensure delivery of all mail with the old ZIP Code for a period of one year to allow customers to make the transition to the new ZIP Code.
Customers who need further details, may contact the Jonesboro Post Office at 870-972-5989.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
