Carriers and counter staff have been polite and efficient. All mail to and from me has been delivered promptly. Can't recall any lapses at all. A model P.O.


This post office is terrible. I wish I knew who I could talk to about the problems I am having because I have spoken to the manager 3 times sent 3 emails and still having problems. Talking to her is not doing any good.


I never had a problem with them, been going here for years...


Terrible post office (and or mail man)! Keep getting mail for other addresses and other streets in my development. Missed two very important appointments because letters advising me of them did not get delivered to me until several days later!!! My neighbor did not get her Rx drugs even though the post office records show them as "delivered". Delivered to where or whom is the question. I believe the post office has a bunch of flunkies working there. No wonder they are losing money....besides email, people are using more reliable methods of delivery such as UPS and FedEx.


This post office is terrible. I ordered festival tickets valued at over $600 dollars a few months back and during that time I moved from Nottingham to Baltimore. Like a responsible adult, I forwarded my mail to my new address. After receiving an e-mail saying my package shipped, I tracked it a few days later and they had delivered it at my old address! When I called to ask, they kept my on hold for 40 minutes and said there was nothing they could do. After I questioned them about the value of my package and how it was their fault that it was lost, they put me on hold and never returned to the phone. I have never felt so disrespected by a company in my life.


The worst post office! Within 6 months, they've lost two packages of mine and basically told me good luck. If I had the choice, I'd never ever deal with them. Cant wait to move and hope they are not my local USPS. Never had these problems and they are so careless about it too! Poor customer service. Needs new management and people need to be seriously held accountable for "losing" packages.


I called this post office to find out where my package was.It was mailed on Dec. 12th.via FedEx and then general delivery.  According to the tracking number from FedEx they dropped this package on Dec. 18th at the Nottingham Post Office to be delivered. Today is the 24th. The package has still not arrived. I called the post office and was put on hold for 43 minutes. Nobody ever came back to the phone. I dialed again and got a different person. They told me that I needed their tracking number not the one for FedEx. I called FedEx. They verified it was dropped at the Nottingham Post Office on Dec. 18th to be delivered by the regular mail man and there was no tracking number for drop offs by FedEx. The post office screwed up a package last year that I sent as a Christmas gift. It tool over 2 weeks to get to the destination and I sent it priority. It was a small package. Needless to say it arrived after Christmas. The post office sucks. No wonder they're losing money. UPS for me from now on!
