Operations at the Raymond Post Office have been temporarily suspended due to structural concerns with the building.
Beginning May 6, all operations at the Raymond Post Office were temporarily moved to the Alden Post Office at 204 Pioneer St. The Postal Service will temporarily install centralized mailboxes in Raymond as soon as possible to make it easier for Post Office Box customers to pick up their mail. Until the mailboxes are installed, post office box customers will need to pick up their mail at the Alden Post Office. Customers are reminded to bring photo identification when doing so.
The Alden Post Office is open 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., Monday through Friday, and 7:45 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. on Saturdays. The phone number at the Alden Post Office is 620-534-3225.
Rural route customers in the area will continue to receive mail delivery as usual. The blue collection box outside of the Raymond Post Office will continue to be picked up as scheduled.
“The safety of our employees and customers is paramount,” said Post Office Operations Manager Guy Moeckel. “So we have temporarily suspended operations and notified the landlord so repairs can be made. Once it is safe, the Postal Service plans to reopen the Raymond Post Office. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our customers, and we will keep them updated on any changes and progress.”
