Grabill set to open village post office

Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - 8:55 am

The town of Grabill was set to get a new village post office Wednesday.

U.S. Postal Service and local officials were scheduled to open the post office at 1 p.m. at Grabill Hardware, 13534 Main St., according to a USPS news release.

The USPS introduced the village post office model last year as a way to maintain retail services in rural areas. Village post offices are run by local businesses contracting with the USPS to offer stamps, flat-rate shipping and other services available at full post offices.

A village post office also was scheduled to open Wednesday in Wolf Lake in Noble County. That office, at the Wolf Lake Marathon station, 1445 U.S. 33, was scheduled to open at 10 a.m. The new offices are the 28th and 29th village post offices in the USPS Greater Indiana district, the news release said.
