Grand Island Independent: When Grand Islanders heard that the downtown post office might close, many objected by saying “Please, Mr. Postman.” The Postal Service rejected the written comments, figuratively saying “Return to Sender.”
The final day for the downtown post office in Grand Island, Neb., has arrived. The retail window at 204 W. South Front will close at 11 a.m. today.
The window will reopen in a new location, at 3835 Old Potash Highway, at 8 a.m. Monday. The Old Potash building, which has been serving as a processing and distribution facility, will become Grand Island’s only full-fledged post office.
