Postal service resumes normal operations in Arkansas

Postal service deliveries temporarily suspended in Jonesboro

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - The United States Postal Service resumed retail and delivery operations in Arkansas Tuesday after winter weather caused the USPS to suspend operations on Feb. 17 temporarily.

In Jonesboro, the Nettleton Branch at 4808 East Nettleton, the ASU Branch at 105 North Caraway Road and the Main Branch at 310 East Street were affected.

The retail and delivery services at the post offices in Parkin at 111 W. Front Street, Tupelo 11220 Highway 17 South and Viola at 9971 Highway 62 West were temporarily suspended by USPS.

In a news release, the USPS asks customers to “be patient” while waiting for some pieces of mail.

“Although we are delivering, there could be some residual impacts nationwide within our network. We ask our customers to please be patient if they are expecting packages or specific mailpieces. We are processing, transporting and delivering all items as quickly as we can,” USPS said.
