14202 Reserve Cove Prospect Ky 40059. Delivery person pulled off and damaged the door to my mail box. I have taken pictures. There is no way the driver did not know they damaged it, it is that bad! Accidents happen but when they do the driver should leave a note or come to my door. As I was home all day. 7/17/21


I have been waiting for weeks to receive important mail which should have been forwarded to me from the Prospect Post Office. I have called *repeatedly* but the phone isn’t answered. I sent an email to Postmaster James Harper and, in turn, I received an email indicating my email couldn’t be delivered to him. This is awful service. I need my mail.


The Prospect post office is amazing and my mail lady Mary, is even more amazing. Thank you for all you do.


On December 8, 2020, UPS dropped off a package for me at the Prospect Post Office. Today is the 11th, and I still don’t have it. I have called the Prospect office three times. No one answers the phone. My dad and my brother were career postal workers. They never provided such awful service. I want my package!!


Customer service IS EXCELLENT! So helpful and friendly.
