Newnan Post Office was open on Presidents’ Day

Customers who were not able to get to a post office due to the recent ice and snow storm were able to conduct their postal business Monday at any one of 27 Atlanta-area Post Offices that were open for business on Presidents’ Day — including the Newnan Main Post Office.

The Newnan Post Office at 60 Postal Parkway off Millard Farmer Industrial Boulevard was open until 5 p.m. on the federal holiday Monday to provide full retail services, said Michael Miles, regional spokesperson for the United States Postal Service.

Red-vested lobby assistants were on hand in each of the designated metro-Atlanta post office to assist customers with their mailing and shipping needs.

“Well, we were down a few days because of the bad weather,” said Becky Holloway, supervisor at the Newnan Main Post Office. “So it’s a win-win situation. It helps us get caught up and we always do what we can to show our customers that we appreciate them.”

Holloway also noted that all of the employees working at the post office on Presidents’ Day were working on a volunteer basis.

“Newnan is such a big place and we do our best to make our customers happy,” said Holloway.

While deliveries weren’t running on Monday, the post office windows were open and provided full service for those customers who needed to either pick up important parcels or get their packages shipped out.

Customers were happy to see the doors open after the closures.

“I generally take care of my postage online so I just drop it off here,” said Newnan resident, Sheri Lambert. “However, it is nice of them to be open today.”

“Honestly, I didn’t even know it was Presidents’ Day,” laughed James Price of Sharpsburg. “I just came by to drop off a package, but hey. I’ll take it.”
