Palmyra residents hear of Post Office hours reduction plan
PALMYRA — A recent announcement stated that the Palmyra Post Office location would be transitioning to staying open for four hours a day on a Monday-through-Friday schedule.
Residents of the township were asked to come to the Palmyra Community Hall July 24 to provide input, concerns and ideas for the best options the post office location might take in the near future. Near 30 residents gathered to attend the meeting hosted by Palmyra Postmaster Cathy Clark and Temperance Postmaster Yvonne Bellestri.
Bellestri also manages the Ida and Samaria offices which are now joined together. According to Bellestri, the post office has gone through recent hardships as online shopping and shipping have given a beating to post office sales.
She also said that the decision to reduce the hours at the Palmyra office was not made a local level but instead was issued by postal headquarters as well Congress decisions.
