Morrison, Tenn., post office suspended over lease issue

Steve HutkinsNews

Southern Standard: On Tuesday, the United States Postal Service announced the suspension of the Morrison Post Office as of May 20. Beginning May 22,  Morrison postal consumers are encouraged to use the Manchester Post Office at 1601 Hillsboro Blvd. or Smartt Post Office at 5174 Manchester Hwy. in Smartt. Morrison P.O. Box customers will keep their existing P.O. Box number and 37357 ZIP Code….

Since May of last year, the shaky state of the Morrison Post Office was bound up in an issue related to the fact that the Post Office leases rather than owns the property…. According to the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury, the property the Morrison Post Office is on is reportedly owned by Greeter Properties in Murfreesboro, but there was no contact information found for Greeter Properties and the address listed was for a law firm which may have been a registered agent for Greeter Properties. Noble Law PLLC did not respond by press time.

Ed. note: The Morrison office almost closed a year ago over the lease issue, so the Postal Service has known for a long time that it would probably not be keeping the office open, yet it notified customers of the suspension only five days in advance.
