You may have noticed that the Ashland Post is closed. We reached out to the Hopkinton Post Office to gather some information and here is what we found out.
The decision to close the post office was made and advance notice did not happen because it was closed within 24 hours of the decision being made. All post office boxes have all been moved to the Hopkinton Post Office. The Hopkinton Post office is located at 5 Cedar Street in Hopkinton. They are open Monday - Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Saturday 8:30 am to 2:00 pm and closed on Sunday.
At this time there is no timeline for reopening of the Ashland Post Office but in the meantime they will continue to pickup main from the mailbox outside the post office daily. In addition to the drop box at the Post Office there is also a mailbox in the parking lot of Needham Bank.
We recently spoke with Jay Higgins from Katherine Clark's Office about the Post Office and he provided the following information. He said that the reason the building was closed was because of water damage in the basement. Since the closure some work has been completed to repair the walls, but additional work is needed. Currently they have estimates for work, but the estimates are awaiting approval.
Once we have any additional information and we will share it, but at this time we have not been provided any timeline.
