Today, a Monday, my newspaper for today arrived, along with newspapers for last Wednesday and the Saturday/Sunday edition. Late delivery occurs often. Those with high home delivery receive their copies of the same paper each day without fail. Why does the Carmel PO not deliver on time consistently? I love my daily PO trip but understand why so many no longer use the Carmel PO for periodical delivery.


Why is lobby closed on Sunday????


post office WAS public agency post office NOW corporate entity po service WAS for the public po service NOW corporate profits po employees WERE public servants po employees NOW goons (especially new ones)


Hi, really upset whoever delivered the mail up on Tierra Grande today which is May8th left a package addressed to me in the dirt half and on the pavement upside down and for anybody to run over or to be stolen. The box was too big to fit in our mailbox and in the past the driver would always bring them up to our doorstep whoever was the carrier today just threw it in the dirt. We have much mail theft up here this is very irresponsible they only have to go a few hundred more yards to come up to our front unbelievable bad service very upset.


I would like to know why one day a week the Post Office can't open at 8am or close at 6pm ...10 to 4 and open on Saturday from 12-2( middle of the day) for people who work 8-to 5 makes this very difficult..
