The absolute WORST Post Office in the United States. DO NOT ship anything from this Post Office. The recipient will never see it. Inept, incompetent employees from the top down. They are lazy and non-attentive to customers. Cannot say enough bad things about this P.O. I wish the USPS would just shut down this Post Office for good!


I had a prescription mailed through USPS and it arrived at post office. I had a hold on my mail and to resume on Monday. I got my mail but not my prescriptions. The prescriptions were held by USPS Charlestown, IN. but were not delivered with my resuming mail. I tracked the shipped and it's at the post office. I tired to call but no one ever answers.


Does anyone actually work here? I've been calling for 2 hours ,each time I call,it sends me to operator who just hangs up😡😡😡😡😡


Sir, I can't find online appointment reservation, where they are?
