Downtown Redmond's will move to Southeast Redmond later this month, a postal service spokesman confirmed to Patch on Wednesday.
As we , the United States Postal Service has decided to move its downtown operations to a distribution center it already owns at 7241 185th Ave. NE. Ernie Swanson, a spokesman for the postal service's Seattle district, said at the time that the move was largely due to financial reasons.
Swanson said Wednesday that the downtown Redmond post office's last day of business will be Saturday, July 28. The new Southeast Redmond location is expected to open the following Monday, July 31.
The new post office will offer all the same services as the downtown location and be open during the same hours, Swanson said.
Meanwhile, the postal service is seeking out a downtown merchant that might be interested in opening a contract store. If such a facility were to open, Swanson said it would be able to offer all the services of a regular post office, except for PO boxes and international mailing.
“We don’t have anything at this point, but we’re still scouting around to see if there might be anybody interested in doing that,” he said.
