Residents may have noticed a new emptiness at the Plympton Post Office. While the clerks remain the same, and the service over the counter is the same, where are the mail carriers? Where is the mail?
Online shoppers during the holiday season bombarded the little building with an avalanche of packages that made sorting the mail and preparing it for delivery a dangerous proposition.
One worker noted that it became an emergency situation and became unsafe for everyone behind the counter.
Now Plympton mail carriers are working out of the spacious Carver post office. The same rural carriers are working their same postal routes, they said, but the carriers work from the Carver location.
“There is no plan to bring the carriers back to Plympton – not to this location – because it is just too small, “ a worker told The Express. For now, service will remain the same, just happening from two locations.
