Customers with postal boxes at the flood-damaged post office in Five Points can now retrieve their mail there, with the once-shuttered facility fully open as early as Monday, a spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service said.
The chain and lock that hung on the station’s doors are gone, though the office’s retail section remains closed. A one-man mobile station is parked outside to accept letters and packages and sell stamps.
Construction work is complete after weeks of renovation, Post Service spokesman Harry Spratlin said. But installation of equipment for retail sales is yet to be finished, he said.
The station was closed for repairs after it flooded during the record rain Oct. 4.
