Yesterday was the last day of operations for the post office at the Sherwood Carrier Annex in Topeka, Kansas. It now has the dubious distinction of being the first post office to close after losing its carriers to a Sorting & Delivery Center.
Or perhaps not. The Postal Service says the Sherwood post office isn’t really a post office.
On June 3, the Postal Service relocated 31 carrier routes and more than 40 carriers from the Sherwood Annex to the new S&DC at the Topeka P&DC, along with carriers from four other post offices.
