PO mail drop off time was incorrect Wednesday
Letters and packages sent from the Park Rapids U.S. Postal Service need to be at the office by 12:45 p.m. each day to get on a truck that leaves at 1 p.m.
Mail from the Park Rapids area with a 564 ZIP code is now being processed in Minneapolis. It had previously been processed in St. Cloud.
Mail will also arrive about an hour later each morning in Park Rapids so carriers will start their routes later as well. Customers should also check the pick up times on the USPS mailboxes throughout the community, which will also have earlier collection times.
These changes are part of consolidation efforts for the USPS.
