Horrible mail sorting and delivery. Impossible to get a human. Get over the COVID-19 excuse and do your job. I have a package that has been sitting for over a week. And nobody can give me any answers. If it was any other workplace you would be fired. Give me my mail


Hey ! New post office delivery person on Friend Street. Do not through someone else mail in mine or others . Be a little more careful in Gloucester on Friend Street. You are still delivering in daylight. Please be more aware of your addresses NUMBES. A lot of wrong addresses stupid mistakes. Good luck.


Very disappointed and angry with the service after trying to personally pick up a package. Called numerous times and received multiple excuses from its nother there to its on a giant pallette when it was received that morning!!


I think this is a nicely organized no gimmicks USPS information site. More efficient for finding info than the real USPS site. However it is lacking info on branch Post Offices in Cape Ann. Gloucester also has 2 branch post offices, one in Lanesville Center and another one on Holly St. next to the Willow Rest near Goose Cove. Also, Rockport has the Pigeon Cove Post Office. Hope that helps someone!
