Post office to operate at reduced hours
From Silverton Standard, the place where you can write!
Posted on October 26 2012, 5:49am by Mark Esper in Local News category
The Silverton Post Office at the corner of 12th and Reese streets Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 23.    

It’s not yet official, but regional Postal Service man- ager Murray Johnson said Monday that the Silverton Post Office will almost cer- tainly be operating under reduced hours starting in January.

The new hours will be from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, with a one-hour closure for lunchtime that is yet to be determined. Saturday hours will remain the same, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Current Monday-Friday hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Another change that has already been implemented is the disappearance of the “Silverton” slot at the post office. All mail — including those to other post office boxes in town — is now sent to Grand Junction for sorting then driven back for next-day delivery. 

One exception is Thursday same-day delivery of the Silverton Standard to Silverton post office box holders.
