Residents now can handle most of their mail needs at the new full-service post office located in Village Walk Pharmacy.
The hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. The Post Office takes Cash, Checks, MasterCard, and Visa, and is equipped to handle everything with the exception of registered mail.
Jason Conley, owner of Village Walk Pharmacy said he is excited to offer this service to Landings residents and hopes everyone will come out and support the on-island post office.
“When Smith’s closed, we had so many people interested in an on-island post office, and we thought we’d give it a shot,” he said. “We would appreciate everyone using it as much as possible, as we were not able to get the same contract that Smith’s had and we want to make sure we can keep it.”
Conley said having an on-island post office is a wonderful convenience for residents but provides other benefits as well. “Having a post office here helps with marketing of The Landings,” he said. “When prospective residents inquire about amenities and services available, we once again can say we have an on-island post office.”
Lori Kilmer, who runs the Village Walk Pharmacy Post Office branch, said that since it opened in early January, it has been well supported.
“We’ve been busier with each passing day,” she said. “The only advice I can offer patrons is that if you have an international package, please fill out the customs form online and bring it in. Other than that, most transactions are super easy.”
