I have received multiple pieces of mail that have been damaged. I understand that the mail carriers have to deliver the mail even if it was damaged prior to him/her getting it, but when a letter was submerged in water, a package damaged with no acknowledge, and a letter torn to pieces in the USPS envelope stating that they were sorry. When I called the USPS office, the man told me that it was not their fault and that there was nothing that he could do about it. I am very disappointed. I just wish they would talk to the carrier and try to resolve this ongoing issue.


Love this small town post office and the friendly people working there at the front desk ! I've witness many times the patience they have with the public who patronize the Elizabeth City, NC Post Office, Keep up the good work! For those who walk in with a chip on their shoulders, you are only going to sow what you reap, slow down, step back and take a deep breath !


Horrible. My mail is getting delivered to different place. I am having to pick up checks from places down the street. When I have talked to the post master he is very rude


RUDE GHETTO AND INEFFIECIENT. Especially the manager Derrick.


Phone never works, people at the counter are terribly rude, won't even respond to emails sent by USPS HQ. Wish someone would fix this place.


They never answer phone it is always to busy and if you get lucky it rings no one answer ...


Long lines and slow moving! Closed today before 4:30. Terrible service


This location is a joke! They steal packages, 4 of mine have come up missing. They are incompetent and thieves. Avoid, Avoid, Avoid!


Very RUDE!!! I ARRIVED AT POST office at exactly 4:30 on my cell phone as did another customer and a man SHUT THE DOOR in my face. I only needed priority envelopes and even asked if he could hand me some. He said no. UNBELIEVABLE!#
