Search Is On For Alternate Provider To Continue Uninterrupted Service Provided by Contract Postal Unit (CPU) in Big Sky, MT

Search is on for alternate provider to continue uninterrupted service

Big Sky, MT — Effective Tuesday February 28, 2023, the Postal Service will suspend service provided by the CPU located in Big Sky, MT. The current provider has chosen to terminate the contract recently negotiated and we will be forced to close this CPU. 

As a convenience to its customers, the Postal Service offers CPUs around the nation, such as the one located in Big Sky, MT. The Postal Service conducts regular discussions with contractors regarding service and terms. We recognize that with many of our resort offices, seasonal volumes and populations can be a challenge, however, it is our full intention to provide service at another, yet undetermined location. We do not anticipate any interruption to mail service.

In the case of this leased facility, the lessor has chosen not to renew the lease. In order to minimize disruptions to our valued customers, local postal management will notify customers about the proposed closure and provide options for their mailing needs, which will meet our universal service obligation. The Postal Service is willing to work with local businesses in the area to explore viable options for another CPU. 

This is an excellent opportunity for steady income for a business owner that also provides a valuable community service. Any potential partners should contact USPS representative Krista Dennis at  for next steps.

We appreciate our customers’ business and their patience as we work to positively resolve this matter and look forward to continuing to meet the future mailing needs of the Big Sky community. 

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.
