Residents on the Redlands will no longer have to travel into town to take care of their postal and mailing needs. A new contract station is now open at the Go–Fer Foods store located in the Safeway Shopping Center on Broadway. Grand Junction Postmaster Jim Price and store owner Rick Sarten proudly cut the ribbon at the new location, Friday, officially opening it for business.
The contract station offers all the same services as the main post office with the exception of C.O.D. and money orders. The postmaster says this is one of two locations customers have wanted for some time.
Price says a contract station on Orchard Mesa is coming soon and could be open in as little as two months. The postal service is currently selecting a business to house that station.
