Lambert-St. Louis International Airport announced today that the branch of the United States Postal Service there will close.
The branch, currently housed in Terminal 1 of the airport, will be open for customers to buy stamps and mail packages until June 30. After that, only a first-class mail drop box will be serviced by the Postal Service at the airport.
“We’re disappointed that our passengers, visitors and customers will no longer be able to receive full postal services at the Airport,” airport director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge said in a statement. “We have worked very hard over the last year or more to work with the Postal Service to keep the branch open. In the end, we understand the Postal Service has to respond to a difficult and changing financial environment.”
