I stopped in early a few days ago and the woman at the counter who helped me was wonderful. She went out of her way to help me find what I needed, and was extremely friendly. This is also the only PO local to me that is open at 8:00am which is incredibly convenient when most FTE's start work by 9:00am. Thank you Chester PO!


The worst P.O. nasty nasty people!!!!!! I can’t take them!!


Worst post office ever!!!!!.... Constantly making mistakes with mail... They also damaged my lawn while delivering mail for no reason. No wonder people complain... When is this incompetency going to end????? ... I never had any issues with postal service until I moved to Chester


Very disappointed in this Post office and have always been. They lose mail and deliver wrong mail frequently. Have lived here 23 years and has always been this way. Currently, we had requested Premium Forwarding service and received 1 week thus far and have not received the 2nd week which tracking shows it hasn't left when it should have 6 days ago. And now our 3rd week of Forwarding which is bundled on Wednesdays shows no record of shipping yet. Called office and they said woman in charge of that will we be in tomorrow . We have PAID and been already charged on our Credit card for this service . As always, typical Postal service doing a poor job.


Lazy and incompetent staff.
