Downtown post office in Lufkin, Texas, closing temporarily, then relocating


Lufkin News: The Downtown Post Office in Lufkin, Texas, is only closing temporarily until an alternative site in close proximity to downtown is located, as the United States Postal Service doesn’t plan to renew the lease at the current location on East Lufkin Avenue, according to a USPS spokesman.

Downtown Post Office box holders received a letter Tuesday stating that the East Lufkin Avenue retail unit would officially close at 4 p.m. April 27 due to termination of the facility lease, which expires on April 30.

USPS Strategic Communications Specialist Robert S. (Sam) Bolen clarified in an email on Friday that the office would only be temporarily relocating services until a new downtown location could be secured.

“The downtown location is not closing, but is temporarily relocating operations to the Lufkin Main Post Office,” Bolen said. “The services offered at this location will be temporarily offered at the Main Post Office (MPO), 800 S. John Reddit Drive, while we search for an alternative site in close proximity to the downtown location.”  Read more.  (Photo: Google Street View)
