Plum post office expected to reopen early 2019
A U.S. Postal Service spokesman said the post office in Plum will be back in business by early 2019.
“Work on site is being done by the building owner,” said Tad Kelley, a U.S. Postal Service spokesman for Western Pennsylvania, in an email. He did not offer additional details.
The office located at 3100 Leechburg Road closed indefinitely in late September. It moved its retail operations and P.O. Box mail service to a location in Monroeville.
The move was announced via a sign posted in its front window.
Kelley said in September the closure was due to “recent conditions that required corrective measures.”
“… it was necessary to temporarily suspend services at the Plum post office. We lease this space and the landlord is taking corrective measures,” Kelley said in an email.
“Royal & Denise Taylor” said on Google’s online question-and-answer forum recently that the post office administration is looking for a new building after receiving water damage from a leaky roof.
Kelley said Monroeville’s branch window service hours are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday. A retail self-service kiosk is in the lobby, which is open 24 hours a day.
