Video: Frustrated customers denied access to mail after Richmond, VA post office closes abruptly

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — People who live in Church Hill are frustrated over the abrupt closure of their post office.

“Without any warning, it’s kind of depressing,” said Lewis Robinson, who showed up Monday morning to get mail from his post office box.

So did John Rasmussen. “I have mail probably including checks for my home business in my PO box that I can’t get to which is personally frustrating,” he said.

A sign on the door of the 25th street location told customers the post office is closed temporarily because of emergencies.

Some people in the area learned about the closure on Friday. That’s when a letter showed up in their mailboxes that advised residents the East End Post Office was suspending service because of several safety issues but it didn’t elaborate on the nature of those problems.
