Post Office Combines Williamsville Retail and Delivery Offices

September 27, 2013 Updated Jun 17, 2011 at 12:08 PM EDT

Williamsville, N.Y. (WKBW release) -- The Williamsville Post Office retail office will be combined with the Williamsville carrier office effective June 27, consolidating the two units at the 5235 Sheridan Drive site.

The carrier unit has been remodeled to accommodate Post Office Box, Automated Postal Center and retail operations.

With changes to mail volume and the introduction of new technology, we no longer need as much space in the carrier unit,” said Buffalo Postmaster John J. Phelan. “Combining retail and carrier operations allows us better use of our resources as well as an opportunity to cut facility costs.”

Post Office Box and retail customers will have access to products, services and box mail at the current retail location, 5423 Sheridan Drive, through Saturday, June 25 at noon. Post Office Box access will be suspended from noon on June 25 until 6 a.m. on June 27 as boxes are relocated to the 5325 Sheridan Drive site.

Hours at the new Williamsville Branch retail office are:

• Monday through Friday - 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

• Saturday - 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

• Lobby hours for Post Office Box access – 24 hours a day/7 days a week

Delivery customers in ZIP Code 14221 are unaffected by the consolidation.
