RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Customers of the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) Stewart branch in Richmond’s Museum District said they have been shut out of the building for nearly a week, unable to access their mail.
“The post office is temporarily closed due to a carbon monoxide leak,” Philip Bogenberger, USPS Strategic Communications Specialist for the North Carolina and Virginia District told 8News in an email. “The Postal Service leases the facility and property owner is in the process of making necessary repairs. We hope normal operations will resume soon.”
On Thursday, Sept. 15, customers said they first faced a locked door at the USPS branch at 3517 Floyd Avenue, just blocks away from Richmond’s busy Carytown neighborhood.
