Questions raised after Muscle Shoals post office closes for second time

Muscle Shoals Post Office Closed

MUSCLE SHOALS, AL (WAFF) - Some people in Muscle Shoals are frustrated over the sudden and mysterious closure of the post office on Avalon Avenue.

Customers are currently having to get their mail out of temporary mail boxes inside a double-wide trailer behind the building, according to our news partners at the Times Daily.

Neither the U.S. Postal Service nor the owner of the post office gone into detail about why exactly the post office was closed.

Many people have reached out to the post office on Facebook about the sudden closure.

Mayor David Bradford says his office has been receiving several phone calls, but that he doesn’t know why it was shut down. He has also reached out to U.S. Representative Robert Aderholt to try to get to the bottom of the situation.

Bradford has also been trying to contact the U.S. Postal Service, but has so far been unsuccessful in getting any answers about the closure.

This is not the first time this post office has closed down. The office had recently re-opened after being closed since August. The post office’s services had moved into the trailer in October, with an expected re-opening in January.

Following that, the post office has once again closed with no tentative date of re-opening just yet.
