USPS Real Estate Specialist Greg Shelton


Due to a loss by fire, the Postal Service is now looking for a new retail services to a yet-to-be-determined location within the zip codes of 49730. The desired size of the new facility needs to be one of the following: (a) an existing building that is approximately 1,832 gross square feet with 11+ dedicated parking stalls that will have both retail and carriers, (b) an existing building that is approximately 770 gross square feet with 8+ dedicated parking stalls that will house only retail, or (c) land to lease that is approximately 8,500 square feet in which the Postal Service can bring in a modular building.

The relocation project will consist of procuring a suitable substitute location, as close as reasonably possible to the existing location. Retail Services will continue temporarily at the Gaylord Post Office until all necessary preparations are completed at the new location.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, instead of a public meeting, we are inviting you to send your comments on the proposal to the following address within the next 30 days to: United States Postal Service, Attn Elmira, MI Relocation, PO BOX 27497, Greensboro, NC 27498-1103.

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