Retail service temporarily suspended at Milan Station PO in Richmond, VA


13NewsNow: Retail services have been suspended at the Milan Station Post Office in Norfolk, Virginia, on Wednesday.

The Postal Service is working with the landlord to reopen the building located at 3800 Colley Avenue as soon as possible.

Delivery services will not be impacted.

Until service can be restored, customers can pick up their Post Office Box mail at Norfolk Main Post Office, located at 600 Church Street in Norfolk.

(The news report provides no further explanation for the emergency suspension, but the USPS Leased Facilities Report for Virginia shows that the lease on the building ends Feb. 28, 2018, so the problem is probably lease related.)

13NewsNow Update: According to the Postal Service, efforts to find a new Post Office location has begun. Prior to the location’s official closing, post office officials said they were ‘cooperating’ with the landlord to get the building open as soon as possible.

What changed? Officials didn’t answer that question, but we contacted the landlord.

He didn’t want to be identified, but told 13News Now he had no idea about plans to close. The lease was ending next month, but there were no troubles, he explained.  Read more.
