I have had similar experience to other person who reviewed this post office. It opens late and is always quite late opening back up after lunch. Given the already very short hours, it is very hard to find this location open. When it is open, the clerk is rude and makes it clear she doesn't want to work or help you. This location exemplifies why USPS is in trouble. It is an almost unusable post office.


In so far as I can tell, this post office is NEVER open. I went one afternoon in the middle of the week around 12:45. They had a sign up saying they're closed for lunch from 1:00-2:00, but it wasn't even 1:00 yet and they had closed. I went again this morning, arrived at 10:50 and they hadn't even opened yet! Hours are supposed to be 10:30-4:30, which is already such a short timeframe, yet they don't open on time and they close for an hour for lunch. So, they're theoretically only operating for a mere 5 hours a day. It's impossible to use this location if they're never open. I went down the street to FedEx instead to ship my package because this is unacceptable and I can't keep wasting my time during business hours to figure out when this location is actually open so I can ship something. Absolutely inexcusable. I will never use this location again! Frankly, whoever is running this location should be fired because they're wasting tax-payer money on their salary.
