I work for a business on Baltimore Ave and we haven't had any mail in 4 days!!! This is completely unacceptable. We are a business and have time sensitive mail that is coming in and going out. I have called the Post Office for 4 days in a row and all it does is ring about 20 times and then goes to a busy signal. The one day I actually saw our mail delivery person, I asked her if we can get our mail around the same time every day because we have business hours and she said to me "You'll get it when you get it!" Another time I called and got someone and made a complaint I was told "We are offering you a free service, if you want your mail everyday then get a PO Box"

Since mail delivery from Lancaster Ave. Post office is almost non-existent, please advise times available for me to come pick up. The postmaster will be notified as well as elected officials. This has been happening since before Covid so don't insult me by playing a recording using this excuse. Not picking up what you're putting down!

What is wrong with the Lancaster Ave post office. The service is terrible. When I track my packages it shows items delivered and but I don't received them until 2 to 3 days later. Several times I have found the packages on my door step after dark. I cringe when UPS forwards the packages to USPS for delivery. Also, I don't receive mail for 2 to 3 days. No weekly circulars for several weeks. Either the carriers can't read of don't care because I receive mail for my neighbors.

I hope whoever stole my North Face jackets from my January 6th order at this location is enjoying them. I hope you and your child were in need of them. I am going to be contacting the postmaster because this is the worst post office ever! They scan your packages and say they're delivered when they're not. I have a camera right on my mail box so I can tell exactly what they're putting in my mailbox and on my steps but I'm going to go as high as I can to file complaints on the thieves in this post office. I was told by someone this is the training facility for mailman and women but that's no excuse for the amount of theft of packages or they shouldn't make it on past that facility they should be fired. Clean up this mess United States Postal Service you know what's going on there's plenty of complaints online

I would like to know why we do not receive the weekly circulars from businesses like others do..It has been weeks and more weeks since we got any. I know the route is done with volunteers after their regular shift but do they not have to deliver it all. Getting mail now at almost dark and some in the dark is bad enough besides leaving it sticking out of the locked box and letting it get wet on rainy days and prescriptions done by delivery. I am sure these businesses are paying for this service and it is not getting done.If they cannot do their job properly they should find other employment.

The service at this post office is Deplorable. I have not received mail since the new idiot carrier took over the route. I have shown her the mailbox and called the Lancaster office and received no answers. Deplorable

I have placed mail (cards) in the mailbox at the VA on Kirkwood Hwy. They never reached their destination. One was a birthday card to my son, with a gift card enclosed. The other was to a friend, cards were mailed on April 18th, I did have a return address on the cards. Is there anyone that can assist me, or is it just a loss.

I am distressed by the failure of the 'mail forwarding' system in the Greenville 19807 area. We have been spending winters in FL for the last 15 years and had an excellent carrier (Paul) who had a brain! This is not neurosurgery -- forwarding first class mail should be in the realm of customer service. We had two spates of erratic service (i.e. no forwarding of first class mail) in January and March. I've spoken to Bob McD at Lancaster Avenue who indicated that he would check it out. Several neighbors in Barley Mill Courts have expressed similar concerns because of service (i.e. third class mail stuffed into mail boxes which gives notice that no one is home). Is there some more training that is necessary? I'd appreciate a response and a path forward that would give me more confidence in the USPS systems. Thanks. Marcia Raniere
