Saturday- You all deserve a good repair & paint job at your front entrance; it’s unnecessarily beat up. Office does not really open at 8. Door unlocked at 8:05, supervisor appears at 8:12 and clerk appears at 8:15. I know because I waited.


I once again am completely disappointed by the incompetence displayed by the Wilmette Post Office staff. For the past 4 years we have contracted for Premium Mail Forwarding (PMF). Every year it takes several weeks for them to get the process working even close to what is advertised. But it is rarely without a problem. Let me explain. My wife and I travel to our winter home each year for several months. I register for PMF,is to have all mail for our Wilmette address to be held at the Post Office and priority mailed to us at our other home every Wednesday. This is week three for this year and we have received one mail package. I assume it contained all of our mail for the week, but I have no confidence since about 20 out of the 60 items forwarded to us were actually addressed to other people at several different addresses.. if the mail is sent from Wilmette on Wednesday it will arrive to us on Friday. It usually doesn’t show up until Saturday or Monday if at all. They sent an email with a tracking number each week but their own system indicates that they have not received the package yet for processing. We have someone check our mail box at our Wilmette residence every few days, because every so often the post office delivers mail to our address.


Extremely rude employee named Mike
