Irons Post Office changes hours for retail window

IRONS — The Irons Post Office is announcing new hours for retail (window) services effective July 3.

The retail service counter will be open between 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and between 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The retail counter will open at 9:30 a.m. and close at 11 a.m on Saturday.

Retail services are established to meet the postal needs of the community within the limits of available hours and resources. Periodic reviews are conducted and adjustments are made to meet changing economic conditions stated Lora Herrmann, Postmaster. “The Irons Post Office is included in a standardized procedure to help post offices match the availability of retail services to their actual workload,” Herrmann further added.

“Since the Postal Service is not supported by tax dollars, these types of adjustments help us manage costs so we can continue to provide universal mail service at affordable rates to all our customers,” said Herrmann. “Keeping our operating costs as low as possible and finding ways to improve efficiency will enable us to meet customer expectations for service while driving costs out of our system,” Herrmann further added.

For customers who wish to purchase stamps, the Postal Service offers a variety of ways to buy stamps without making a trip to the post office.

You can order stamps by mail by calling (888) ASK-USPS, by phone 1-800 STAMP 24, or on the Internet at www.usps.com.
