This review is regarding the Wilkes-Barre post office. I sell online vinyl records via a selling website similar to ebay. I use Media Mail shipping and have been doing this for a few months now. I am super disappointed in the service as I am starting to receive (some) of my packages back for R.T.S; I use recycled priority boxes and make sure to block out "Priority" all over the box. I have now had almost $200 of inventory returned back to me and angry customers that are expecting their purchase. This post office is a joke, they don't answer their phone, the 2 orders I have received back now were written ALL over, ALL over the shipping label, all over the box, etc...one of which they felt the need to correct the mailing date from 05/22/17 to 05/24/17 when I am 100% sure it was placed with USPS on Monday the 22nd of May. I keep track of all of my shipments on paper and when I drop them off especially. So because you don't do your job on time or properly, it makes MY business look bad. I ordered boxes from you; also sent me the wrong boxes. Luckily I was able to re purpose them for other things but honestly; this post office is a joke. The first package I received back was over a $100 order of about 6-7 albums, I dropped it in the mail and received it back to my address over 7 days later. I live a few blocks from this post office; if it were "wrong" then why did it take over a week to get it back to my address???? I don't know how some of you still have jobs, and I don't know how you could be a federal postal service with time frames and barely sub par professionalism like this. Let's get something straight, I AM A PAYING CUSTOMER. I received a package via Amazon the other day too, I didn't even need to open the box to get it out the box was torn, crushed, and opened. What the hell!!?!?!?!? HANDLE IT!


I bring my eBay packages to this post office several times a week. I am always welcomed with courtesy and my packages are handled with efficiency. I give this post office a thumbs up.


This is not a review. It's just that I haven't received mail for about three days now, since the snowstorm March 14, 2017. Any chance of getting it to me before the upcoming snowstorm for today March 17, 2017? I do have bills to pay which do come in the mail. THANKS


I have lived at the same address for 3 yrs ...as of last week i have not got mail...just recently i order a phone came with delivery confrimation...just 3-2-2017 its telling me it was undeliverable as this has been tried at 20.28 an and 4.44 pm so i call and get a redilver confrimation and was informed it will be delivered 3-3-2017 ...so today i call the wilkes barre post office go threw the automated system and bam hung up ...is this any way to conduct business ... I think your paid well do your dam job right....my name is on my mail box and my home has 3 big numbers in front. Also living in wilkes barre city on a residental street. Is not hard to find my home has been getting mail here for 80 yrs ...come on ...i want to say this i bow get my mail from moheghan sun casino now at the casino ...what a joke


Not sure whether or not its the Post Office Union, Postmaster, Union or the building I live in. I await very important government mail and have been involved in some kind of illegal activity committed against me, My name is Wayne Gribble. I've lived in a Building called wilkes barre housing authority and have to say it is the worst place I've ever lived in! The manage ment are involved in all kind of scams including but not limited to falsifying paperwork for the PA rent rebate program. The building stinks like cat odor and just nothing but problems. Now I have just gone to my mailbox and found that there was a notice from the mail carrier in my box that says my apt is vacant. I have lived here for 9 and sum years. I can write a book on what they have done to me in here. If it were up to me and many others the building should be demolished Please help do something. Wayne Gribble 215 High St. or Blvd. Apartment 900 wilkes barre pa 18702


It'd be nice to have someone answer the phone.


You've got to be kidding! I ship all my out of state packages from this branch and on occasion use their bulk mailing services. The staff are pleasant and helpful.


It took 3 days to ship my package rto wilkes barre and now its gonna take em another 3 days to deliver it when i can see the post office what a waste going ups next time


Don't bother calling because they will not answer your telephone call.


Just tried you're right. What a misfit outfit, no wonder they're broke.
