U.S. Post Offices Open in Two Branches of Kansas City Public Libraries
The new offices [opening today] will open inside the Lucile H. Blueford Library and North-East Branch Library.
Customers will be able to buy stamps, mail packages and open a P.O. box.
The Postal Service hopes these village locations will be more convenient for customers by being open longer hours, and also save the company money.
“It is a cost saver for the postal service. Because we are not tax supported and haven’t been for about 30 years we really have to look out for every penny,” postal spokesperson Richard Watkins said. “These village post offices will be open longer hours than a traditional brick and mortar post office so that also benefits the customers. It’s really a win-win situation for everyone.”
