The Greenwood Post Office is changing its hours this month as part of the U.S. Postal Service’s strategy to keep smaller offices open.
Beginning Oct. 28 new hours will be 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 pm. Monday through Friday. The office will be closed 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Hours are unchanged on the weekend, 8:30 to 10 a.m. Saturdays.
The U.S. Postal Service said the changes are part of a framework to achieve significant cost savings to return the organization to long-term financial stability.
The plan would keep the existing Post Office in place, but with modified retail window hours to match customer use. Access to the retail lobby and to PO Boxes would remain unchanged. The town’s ZIP Code and community identity would be retained.
“Meeting the needs of postal customers is, and will always be, a top priority. We continue to balance that by better aligning service options with customer demand and reducing the cost to serve,” said Postmaster General and CEO Patrick R. Donahoe. “With that said, we’ve listened to our customers in rural America and we’ve heard them loud and clear – they want to keep their Post Office open.”
