Maunaloa Post Office Reopens
By Catherine Cluett Pactol
After a three-month closure, the Maunaloa Post Office reopened on Tuesday, June 1. The facility was closed since late February due to structural concerns and pest control issues.
“We want to thank our Maunaloa customers for their patience and support during the temporary closure,” said USPS Hawaii District Manager Eileen Veach. “We’re eager to resume our operations and to demonstrate our commitment to serving our loyal customers in Maunaloa and across the state.”
During the temporarily closure, customers had been picking up their mail at the Ho’olehua Post Office, a situation that caused inconvenience for many and overcrowding of the Ho’olehua building, according to concerned customers.
During the last three months, improvements have been made to the Maunaloa building.
“Facility work included cleaning, painting, plumbing and electrical work,” said Duke Gonzales, a USPS spokesperson in Honolulu. “Thanks to that work, the Maunaloa Post Office is safer and more aesthetically pleasing, both inside and out.”
The Maunaloa Post Office is open from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on weekdays and provides PO box mail delivery to more than 240 customers.
