Edmonds Post Office seeking citizen ideas on a new location

A real estate specialist for the U.S. Postal Service will attend the Tuesday, July 27, Edmonds City Council meeting to hear citizens’ ideas about a new location for the downtown Edmonds Post Office.

John Logan of USPS will be taking suggestions for possible space, since the current Post Office facility at 2nd and Main is in a leased building that has been sold, Postal Service spokesman Ernie Swanson said. Last October, letter carriers working out of the Edmonds facility were transferred to the Perrinville Carrier Annex, so the downtown location is now being used for retail sales and mail box rentals.

“We definitely want to stay in the downtown area,” Swanson said. “That is the area in which our customers are accustomed to going for their mailing needs and to pick up Post Office Box mail. We have extended the lease for about a year to enable us find a new location.”

Swanson said the ideal post office building would have “about 4,110-square feet of usable floor space.”

  1. Heard about the facility closing a while back, and am very relieved to hear that the USPS wants to stay in the downtown area. Moving towards 99 for cheaper real-estate would have been an easy answer for them, but downtown is a better fit for our community.
