2 items: The New Edmonds PO is not handicap friendly at all. The walk from the handicap parking into up the long ramp, across the PO boxes, lobby and into the main area is way too prohibited. I do not believe this could be considered ADA compliant.
The postal worker "Larry" needs to retire. He is down right rude and gruff "most of the time". Today I witnessed him treat this elderly, longtime regular handicapped senior just awful! He was not kind or patient, friendly or helpful to her but he more more than enough time for friendly chitchat with the people before her leaving all of us standing and waiting beyond the time we should have had to. This is not the firs time either. More and more Edmonds residents do not want to use this "convenient" office in our town because of the way Larry treats people and holds up lines. Then he was rude to me. I asked to have the packaged stamped "fragile", he stamped a corner and said "that wouldn't work" so stamped on my clear tape and said " that's just going to rub off" so I asked if he could put tape over it and he said ll"we have not had tape in over 10 years and you can do it yourself!" All very rudely. This is not helpful, this is not funny or fun and I think something needs to be down about it and the handicap situation. I now try my best to to to the UPS store to mail all my packages because no one deserves service like this.
I would avoid using this post office at all costs. When you drop packages off in their bin after hours, the employees often neglect to check for package the next day OR look underneath the bin. They also do not have a viable phone, you have to call the Perrinville branch. The
I was to pick up my mail on December 27th not realizing that is a Sunday. Hopefully you will hold my mail until Monday the 28th and I will pick it up Monday morning. PLEASE DO NOT RETURN IT. You were holding it for Joan M Zoffel 75 Pine St. # 103 Edmonds, Washington
First, I want to thank you for having this info so easily accessible. I needed to know when the last pick up was today and found it in under a minute - VERY user friendly website. There wasn't going to be a "Second" but saw the comment below. EVERY business/organization etc. has folks that need to not be there, but I've had one frustrating encounter in 6 years, post office folks and our regular carrier are consistently friendly and efficient and I personally believe the USPS is magic. You address and put a letter in a big metal box in Edmonds and it comes out across the country reaching even those in the most remote outposts or across the world - even when the language is Chinese or Italian or Norwegian. Our only issue is with the substitute carrier who delivers to us instead of where it's suppose to go next door - happens almost once a week. But compared to many other providers and services, the USPS shines!
