USPS to set up mobile post office in Minneapolis after 2 locations damaged in riots
MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - The U.S. Postal Service will set up a mobile post office in Minneapolis as the Lake Street and Minnehaha USPS locations relocate due to damage sustained during the riots.
According to the USPS, the mobile post office will be set up in the vacated KMART parking lot on West Lake Street. It will be open June 18-19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
At the mobile post office, customers can purchase postage, send a package and buy a money order. The mobile post office will take cash, checks and credit/debit cards for purchases. PO Box services and package pickups will not be done at the mobile post office.
