USPS Alfred Station Hours Cutback

Posted in: S Carthay

Why where the hours for our local post office (Preuss 90035) cut almost 30% while neighboring post offices in Beverly Hills, Century City, and Culver City had much smaller cuts in hours?

Preuss is very high traffic post office, and since the hours where cut the lines have been out the door every day.

Here is a copy of a letter I send to our Congresswomen - feel free to copy and use it.


Dear Congresswomen Bass:

On May 18th the hours of operation for our local post office (Preuss 90035 at 1270 Alfred Street) where cut back almost 30%. This was a much larger cut in hours then any of the neighboring post offices in Beverly Hills, Century City and Culver City.

This is the only full service post office in the area that does not open at 9 am or earlier.

This post office serves a lot of small business customers like myself. With these shorter hours, the lines at our post office are already 30-60 minutes long at opening. This  makes it for difficult to use for business services like international mail, parcel pickup and special package services.

I hope you will look into this, as accessible post office is an important service for your constituents and the local business environment.
