Mailing stuff from the Washington Street Post office just got even more gnarly. The Post Office has sold the truly inconveniently-located parking lot that is across the street at Benton. As of May 13, you'll have to use the parking garage.
Perhaps the Washington Street station is nearing extinction, which is a shame. Ever since Mail Works ceased to be a postal substation and the prices soared, I've been mailing stuff as infrequently as possible. The Ogden Avenue Post Office is so huge and unwieldy and a pain in the stamp. (Would someone tell me why post offices are always so ridiculously inefficient?)
I filled out a ponderous form sent by the US Postal Service regarding all things postal in Naperville last week. And I used the comments section abundantly. But I swear I didn't dis the Post Office or its parking lot.
