I have to agree with the comments below. Nothing has changed. Today, I went there to buy Christmas stamps. I waited in line for about 10 minutes. A certain man working there was definitely chatty. I initially thought he was a friendly person. When it was my turn, I knew people were behind me so I thought I was being efficient by asking for three different sets of holiday stamps. He rudely cut me off and corrected me with condescending tone Anyway, it made the situation very uncomfortable from then on. I will drive to Durham to avoid future occurrences.


One employee who works at this post office was very rude to me once when the lock on my po box was broken. She didn't seem to feel it was her responsibility. I once mailed a registered money order from this post office for over 300 dollars which was never delivered and never returned to the post office by the mail carrier. I never got the money back. The money order just "disappeared" apparently, as none of the employees at this post office could give me an explanation as to what happened to it. They are very "folksy" at this PO, spending lots of time gossiping with the locals who come in to waste time because they are wealthy stay at home Guilford men and woman who have nothing better to do. Too bad the employees couldn't be as thorough about doing their jobs as they are about discussing the minutiae of their customers' lives in terms of whose child got on the honor role or the local sports team, or is going to college next year, etc. This is probably one of the least efficient and most backwards of any post office I've been to in CT.


I absolutely agree! We just moved to Guilford from another part of the state and I cannot believe the inefficiency, the carelessness and the lack of decent service at this PO. I have had mail "gone missing" for weeks (or never to receive it at all) with no a word of concern from any of the postal workers; I have been told to "find another post office" when I asked about the lack of certain stamps, and I have waited in line for minutes on end as the workers dallied with the older locals talking about nothing. I am going to report this PO to some higher authority and have an investigation set up into the horrid service at the Guilford PO.
