This is the most friendly post office I have ever used. We moved here from Ohio and I have never had to utilize a post office box. They were so patient and kind to explain how everything worked and what address to put for packages that can't be delivered to a PO Box. And every time I have been in since, I have had nothing but friendly, courteous help. Gulf Shores is a wonderful community and this post office is part of what makes it that way!


By far the best experience I have ever had with a post office. I usually hate going to my local PO, so I was hesitant to renew passports while visiting gulf shores. Excellent people and service. Four passports in twenty minutes total for everything, including us filing out all forms and pictures, etc
Thank you again for five star service
