Downtown Jonesboro Post Office reopens

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The United States Postal Service moved back into its downtown Jonesboro facilities Monday morning.

The Postal Service made renovations to the downtown complex and opened their doors to business at 8:30 Monday morning. The facility will have over 600 Post Office boxes for rent, and will have a retail window open from 8:30-3:00, Monday through Friday.

"We want our customers to know we are excited about returning to the Downtown Station," said Jonesboro Postmaster, Rob Driskell.  "Customers will enjoy a Postal retail presence in the downtown area."

The Postal Service suspended operations at its East Street location in June 2009 because a broken air conditioner forced them out of the building. The Postal Service then sold the building to CWL, and will lease the space from CWL.

The cost cutting measure was part of the Postal Service's goal of trimming $5.9 billion dollars in expenses nationwide.

The Hattie Caraway Station on Race Street will still offer passports and passport photos Monday through Friday from 8:30am-4:00pm.
