The flood-damaged post office in Five Points fully opened on Tuesday for the first time since the historic Oct. 4 storm.
The station closed for months after floodwaters damaged flooring and drywall and led to mold growth. Six tons of material were removed during the renovation, and delays were needed to prepare the floors in case of future floods, U.S. Postal Service spokesman Harry Spratlin said.
“Customers have been expressing their appreciation that the office is finally reopening,” Columbia Postmaster Walt Rowland said in a release. “Five Points customers love their post office and are extremely loyal.”
