Brooklyn’s postal outlet will be closing Oct. 12 and reopening out of Wa-Su-Wek Ltd. on 85 Hillside Rd. in Brooklyn on Oct. 15.
Darlene and Phillip Mulie, owners of Liverpool Heating and Applicance Services Ltd. are closing shop.
Darlene is keeping the post office open for three extra weeks, says Anick Losier, director of media relations for Canada Post.
“She just wanted to make sure the mail would stay in the community, and we’re so grateful to her for doing so,” adds Losier.
The retail services are slated to open at the end of October, says Losier.
When a business hosting a post-office outlet informs Canada Post it’s closing, Canada Post’s job is to “maintain services in the community.”
“We approach other possible businesses that could host the postal services,” says Losier.
People who use Brooklyn’s postal services will be able to have a free change of address for six months.
“I think what we want to say most of all is to say thank you to Darlene for making the transition as smooth as possible, keeping it open those extra three weeks,” says Losier.
“We know it’s not easy, especially with the recent news about the mill closing.”
