Post office running short on time for move decision

With its lease set to expire in less than two months, the Jamaica Plain post office still has no resolution over whether it will move or shrink.

“As it stands, we are looking at all the best available opportunities for both our operations in JP and the customers we serve. I will be in touch with you as soon as we know more,” Melissa Lohnes, spokesperson for United States Post Services (USPS), said in an email to the Gazette.

USPS’s lease for the 655 Centre St. post office with property owner Bulfinch Companies expires April 30.

Several local elected officials—City Councilor Matt O’Malley, local state Reps. Jeffrey Sanchez and Liz Malia and state Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz—sent a signed letter in January to both parties asking them to resolve negotiations and offering their help in doing so.
