I have medicine refill from Columbus Walmart pharmacy. Walmart had record to mail out the medicine on 4/28/2020. In my credit card, it also has shown the bill. Now, 5/5/2020, I still do not receive it. I call this number, 812-378-3521, not get answer. Please check this package for me. I really need this medicine. I am too old to get out. Thanks for your help.


Went to the Columbus post office today completely not knowing how to mail a package as quickly and personally as possible. The Indian descendant lady was the most helpful and knowledgeable post office employee I have ever dealt with in my 58 years of life. ***** NOTE**** This may sound normal BUT please understand I am a Military Veteran with personal issues concerning the Iran Hostage Crisis , therefore I went into this transaction with a predisposition of a racial matter. I was WRONG...She was extremely courteous,knowledgeable and very patient. Surprised the " inner-me ".


2 years later and they still miss place mail in mailboxes and lose package and are slow at fixing the mistakes they need to do better


8 months later they are still unable to answer the phone....or deliver mail properly. Instead of knocking they leave a notice needing signature and to pick up at post office....while we are sitting right here and heard them put mail in the mailbox.


Would be nice for someone to answer phone at Columbus post office.
