Lake Street Post Office Closing

Lake Street Post Office Closing

Postby metas » Fri May 20, 2011 7:44 am

Last week I noticed a "For Rent" sign on the building housing the Lake Street post office. I asked the clerk inside where they were moving to and he said they weren't moving; they were closing. He said the first the clerks who work there knew about it was when they saw the "For Rent" sign. That place was always busy. I don't know what the plans are for the post office to serve the UW area but think some kind of service branch is necessary. Does anybody have further information?

We don't need a campus post office. Students can drop off their mail at another post office each time they head to the DMV to pick up a new Voter ID.

Yes that PO was busy. Hard to understand. So was the Pizza Hut that was near there. That area is going downhill.

I heard they are moving, not closing, but don't know where yet.

I asked the Guy working there about it and he said they don't tell him anything. Sounds like a great place to work.

Why don't they put it the lucky building, there's lots of space in there

WTF? Why is there no sign outside indicating that the post office closed/moved. Also, usps.com still lists the Lake St location and when I called they voicemail did not indicate that the branch was closed.

The branch is not closed yet. There is a sign outside saying 'bldng for lease'.
