Lockport Post Office Retail Operations will Move to a New Location

CAROL STREAM, IL – The United States Postal Service will relocate retail services from 1059 E. 9th Street to 950 East 9th Street in Lockport, IL.

The purpose of the move is to relocate retail operations into one building with delivery operations. This will also provide improved parking for retail customers. The Postal Service will provide the same retail services at the new location. Until the new move is completed, retail services will continue at the 1059 E. 9th Street Post Office location.

In accordance with 39 C.F.R. § 241.4, this is the United States Postal Service’s final decision with respect to the Postal Service’s proposal to relocate retail services to the new location at 950 East 9th Street in Lockport, IL.

The Postal Service announced the proposal on March 5, 2021, and due to COVID 19 in leu of a public meeting a postcard was mailed on June 1, 2021, for comments. The Postal Service carefully considered all of the concerns expressed in those discussions, as well as in appeals and comments received after the public meeting.

While the Postal Service is sensitive to the impact of this decision on its customers and the Lockport community, the Postal Service properly considered community input and this decision is consistent with Postal Service objectives. To be self-sustaining, the Postal Service must make decisions that ensure it provides adequate and affordable postal services in a manner that is as efficient and economical as possible.

This is the final decision of the Postal Service with respect to this matter, and there is no right to further administrative or judicial review of this decision.

The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products, and services to fund its operations.
