I guess they don't own a telephone, call around 10:30AM like 5 times, really how busy can they be


Probably the worst post office I have ever been to. I have been recommended by USPS to go to this post office to assess the damage of a package that I shipped with USPS and that was returned to me damaged: I called the post office in advance to make sure that they could do this, and they confirmed that I could stop by in the afternoon do to this. I stopped by, and the person who was in charge of assessing the damage, Mr. Christopher Ippoliti, had left.I left all the documentation to assess the damage to another person in the post office, who promised that the supervisor would get back to me, which he didn't. I called Mr. Ippoliti multiple times, and every time he tried to get rid of me by putting me on hold for 20 mins or longer. I insisted for about 4 days. When I finally spoke to him, he claimed that he didn't have any of the documentation that I left him, and he said 'This is not my problem'.Worst clerks and worst post office, ever.


One of central New Jersey's many fine postal facilities! A little hard to find, but well worth the effort. I can recommend the Priority Mail--- delicious!--- and the ever-reliable Media Mail.
