“Another Post Office Moving”

ICYMI: “The USPS is proposing moving the Temple Heights location that just closed into the former Drybar spot”

Thanks to A. for sending:

“The east-end of the H Street corridor is also seeing a proposal for our post office to move to a new location. It is a short 4 minute walk away from the old location. I really welcome this change. The owners of the Hechinger Mall complex really don’t do well in maintaining the property or keeping it clean. The alcove where the elevator and stairs are next to the post office always smells strongly of urine and isn’t really inviting. The post office also currently doesn’t offer a lot of features. It is very barebones. You can’t even buy stamps without going to the window. I have a PO Box for our company there where they allow address delivery for other services like UPS, FedEx, DHL, and Amazon. A move to a newer and cleaner location would be welcomed. The new location looks to be a first floor retail location in the new Link Apartments building at the corner of 17th and H Street NE across from the Hechinger Mall Complex. All in all, I just hope that the long talked about redevelopment of the Hechinger Mall Complex is getting closer. Tenants like a post office leaving would be a good sign that redevelopment is in the works if not for the new Autozone that just opened there. I’ll be writing to support the move as long as I get to keep my PO Box number.”
