Downtown Pinehurst Post Office to Close Aug. 19
The U.S. Postal Service will close the downtown post office in Pinehurst on Aug. 19.
A spokesperson for the postal service confirmed the closing date and said services will be consolidated with those at the post office on Blake Boulevard.
“We are in a dire financial situation,” said Enola Rice, spokesperson for the postal service, “and are making changes so we can make sure we will be here in the future.”
Rice said the post office boxes at the downtown branch will be relocated to Blake Boulevard facility. Residents who don’t want to have their boxes relocated have the option to have mail delivered to a home or business address, she said.
Rice did not say what plans, if any, the postal service had for the downtown building.
The Blake Boulevard post office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday.
