EVERGREEN — Evergreen Post Office, located at 7077 Old Evergreen Road, is now able to offer customers some retail services and the ability to pick up their P.O. box mail from the USPS Mobile Retail Van, which is staged in the Evergreen Post Office customer parking lot.

According to a press release from the U.S. Postal Service, Evergreen customers will now no longer have to drive to Pamplin Post Office to pick up their mail. “The blue collection box and the relay box have been moved to a concrete pad which has been installed in front of the retail van. This will eliminate the need for customers to approach the post office building and ascend the stairs during the repair process.”

During the tornado on Feb. 24, the roof of the building, which housed a vacant general store and the Evergreen Post Office, was blown off and windows were damaged. “Repairs are currently underway. Customers are advised to be aware of construction materials, possible debris and vehicles when entering the parking lot. Customers are also strongly cautioned to carefully watch their footing in the area around the retail van and collection box.”
