MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) – The U.S. Post Office reported that both the Lake Street Post Office and the Minnehaha Post Office are total losses due to the fires that spread this past week.
The post offices were destroyed during the riots over the last week following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.
Officials wrote that both post offices “have a rich history in their communities, with Lake Street serving customers since 1977 and Minnehaha since 1970.”
The operations have been relocated to nearby locations to allow for our employees to continue to serve the community. City carriers resumed delivery to both neighborhoods Monday out of their new temporary homes.
“We are working hard to find our customers a more permanent solution and stations to call their own,” they wrote. “Our employees, as evident from the ‘writing on the wall,’ are very excited to connect with their customers again!”
