Reopening of the post office to be decided
The date for the reopening of the new Prague post office has been tentatively set for Monday 1 November. Provisional turned out to be the key word because a message in the door of the post office on Main Street had the date November 1 crossed out and “To be determined” (To be decided) written on it.
The New Prague Times contacted the Postal Service about the reopening of the city’s post office and received an email from a representative of the US Post Office stating that there were problems with the internet connection and that management work with the service provider to resolve the issue. US Post will make an announcement when an opening date is determined.
The new Prague Post Office has been closed for about two and a half months now, as it closed on Saturday, August 21, with a 26-day closure scheduled so that work can be done on the floors of the structure.
Services for New Prague are still handled by the Prior Lake Post Office, 4455 Village Lake Dr. SE. The office hours are Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. You can also reach them at 952-447-1062.
Customers who have PO boxes in New Prague have used temporary cluster boxes outside the front of the New Prague post office.
Mail can still be dropped off in the blue mailboxes and will be picked up from there. Boxes can also be dropped into blue letterboxes as long as the box is suitable and customers don’t try to cram them into the box. Customers can also leave a box in their home mailbox or go to www.usps.com and request when picking up the package.
