You can call and call but no one ever answers the phone. The published number is the same as the actual person at the PO Window gave me was the same = 941-721-0306 but it is a false number. You can try and try and it is never answered. The tracking on a package stated it wad delivered but I never, never received it and cannot talk to anyone. I told Walmart not to use USPS because you cannot depend on them.

They've always been the best however, recently cannot get through by phone to speak with anyone.....I need to contact the Postmaster. I can take a ride over but I'm in rural north Palmetto and I had hoped to make sure they were there first. No answer by phone.

Have not received any mail in last 5 days? My address is 9205 31 Ave. East Palmetto, Fl 34221 Also why have a post office telephone number if no one ever answers it?

Hello, we were forced to return to Canada before the due date due to the virus. Before leaving we filled out the post sign to indicate that we would transfer our post to my address in Canada. I don't understand mpas but there is a package that was put back in our locker in Palmetto, Florida. Would you be able to return this package and everything in my locker to my address in Canada. Address in Florida: Gerard Lefebvre 751 10th St E Lot 53 Palmetto FL 34221-5351 United states Address in Canada: Gerard Lefebvre 3150 chemin des Ecossais. Sherbrooke QC. Canada J1H0A7

My address is in Tropic Isle just off 10th and I can’t get a package delivered to my place if my life depended on it. I have even indicated that the address is in Tropic Isle..Do you only deliver to tne first couple streets off 10th and won’t go any further into the Park? Sooo disappointed. I’ve had two things I’ve ordered returned to the sender because you couldn’t find an address that has been there for more than 40 yrs. What’s up with that !🙄

To help ensure correct and efficient mail/package delivery, make sure your house number is clearly visible on the mailbox and the house. You may have a newer carrier, or a new sub (fill in) that doesn't know the route yet. As a newer carrier myself (different PO) it's challenging. We really do our best to sort, organize, load up the trucks, and deliver the mail and packages in a timely manner. It's very helpful for us if you have clearly marked mailboxes/houses, so we can get your mail and packages to you without issues! We like happy customers!

I'm constantly having problems with this post office scanning my priority packages! When I call to speak to someone whom works there, its an animated machine that gives out options. But no option of speaking to an actual human being! My mailman picked up the my packages yesterday which he did not scan right away, but didn't get scanned until the next morning! And one of my packages still hasn't been scanned and it's almost 2 in the afternoon!!! You all need to do your job and scan PRIORITY mail! I'm running a business and by you not scanning my packages you are making me look bad!!! My next step is to show up at the post office and speak to management because this is absolutely ridiculous!!!!!

They leave keys that don’t work I’ve been trying to get my mail for days now and it is locked in a package box at my mailbox area and the key they left won’t work the locks need WD40 or something. The key almost broke in half I wrote a note and left the key. Still 4 days later no word from anyone. It’s ridiculous no one holds them accountable

This week I received mail for three different addresses. Today I tracked a package that says it was delivered to my house today and it was not. I have no idea where it is. This has been a continuous problem.

Any time I had needed to go to the Palmetto branch, the staff has been courteous, right on point, and very efficient. Always had a very positive experience in either shipping, receiving, or purchasing with any and all staff members. Kudos!

So it looks like this is a really bad post office. Now I understand why 7 of my mail pieces were returned. Also, why is there a busy signal when someone calls the number?

I have been trying to call this office for 3 days now. I have called at various times during the day and the phone just rings off the hook. Then at times I would get a busy signal. Now I have to make a special trip there to find out what is going on with my mail. This is by far the worst experience I have had with the postal service. I called Lakewood Ranch by accident and they answered on the first ring and were very polite.

went in and reported a lost package and was given a delivery supervisor who was very rude and inconsiderate. The package was reported that is was dropped off on Saturday February 27, 2016. We never received any mail, so I stopped in on Monday to report it lost or stolen or whatever the procedure is, upon my complaint I simply stated that I had 4 of my neighbors that simply reported that the mail truck didn't even stop by here on Saturday and I thought that was important to state, since like I mentioned 4 of my neighbors reported the same thing and I was just going to double check my security cameras just to be sure......(this is where I was interrupted before I could finish my sentence) so then the supervisor began to be well this one guy tried to nail my delivery driver for his job he lived her in Rivera dunes blah blah blah telling me all the scuttle butt, but in the same token trying to put my in my place and and didn't want to hear any more of this and this delivery driver didn't take your package... At this point I had about enough of her mouth and I stopped her and told her look your situation in Rivera dunes is irrelevant, if you would have let me finish what i was saying before I was interrupted by you, I was going to state that I will just double check my security cameras to be sure that it might have came on another mail car which does happen from time to time or if someone did take it out of my mail box I can be sure to help in the investigation. I was not at anytime trying to say that the delivery driver was trying to take my stuff, for god sake I ordered leggings, bras, and underwear, I would hope my MALE mail man wouldn't take those things, he would have no use for any of those items. My main concerns was, could it have been delivered somewhere else? if so can we retrieve it? human error? something? NO, of course we have to listen to her run her mouth and make an asshole out of herself... and talk about irrelevant things that do not pertain to me or my case and jump to conclusion because apparently we have to make this process as dramatic as possible!

Mail has been dragging on for a couple of months know.Had a package that was supposed to be on the truck for delivery by end of day and we close at 4pm waited up until 3:55pm and closed now tracking said business closed. What happened with delivering mail at 11-12pm?Why is mail running behind in Palmetto?Sometimes we don't get mail for two days.Need my package!
