The US Post Office has already moved their distribution center at 23rd and Union to 4th and Lander. While the distribution arm of the location was the bulk of the employment at the location, the retail front has remained open.
Now the Post Office has announced that they plan to move the retail location to “a smaller, more cost-effective location,” Russ Rainey with USPS told the City Council’s Economic Resiliency and Regional Relations Committee Wednesday (see video below).
They are in the first steps of the search for a new location, so it is still “several months down the road,” said Rainey.
However, PO Boxes at 23rd and Union will be moved to Broadway and Denny. Our sister site Capitol Hill Seattle reported last year on the sale of that property, though there are not yet plans for change there.
Here’s the video of the meeting (starts around the 7:00 mark):
