The Crothersville Post Office retail counter will reduce their hours for the rest of the summer. The temporary ‘summer hours’ of operation will take effect on July 18. Mail delivery will be unaffected by the change.
The summer retail counter hours will be:
Monday through Friday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed 12:00-1:00); Saturday: 9-11 a.m.
According to local Postmaster Carolyn King, adjusting retail hours during the summer will allow supervisors greater flexibility for scheduling staffing to adjust to fluctuating lobby traffic, which will increase operational efficiency and reduce operating costs.
“The ongoing decline in mail volume means fewer customers in our lobby,” said King. “It makes business sense for us to adjust staffing to the declining workload.”
While the retail counter hours are reduced on Saturday the lobby will still open at 7 a.m. for post office box holders to get their mail.
King added that customers may purchase mailing and shipping services from the U.S. Postal Service without making a trip to the Post Office.
“They can go to our website, usps.com, to buy stamps or send packages with Click-N-Ship. Customers can even request to have their letter carrier pick up their package the next business day at no charge,” King said
Retail counter hours at the Crothersville Post Office will return to the previous schedule on September 8.
