The oldest post office in the Boundary will continue to operate at a new location.
“We can confirm that we have secured a new post office location to serve Rock Creek residents, without interruption to their postal services,” Canada Post spokesman Phil Legault wrote in an email.
As of Monday, the post office relocated to the Husky gas station at 4140 Highway 3. It will operate seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
However, Legault said “as the post office gets up and running, we will temporarily have limited services as we build towards access to our usual full range of products and services.”
There will also be a temporary interruption in delivery to postal boxes, but Canada Post says it hopes to have them in place soon. They ask that customers bring a government-issued photo ID to collect their mail and parcels at the counter.
The post office was previously located at Rags, Relics, and Rutabagas, but closed on Friday for what Canada Post called “reasons beyond our control.”
The Rock Creek post office has been at many different locations and moved several times in the last 20 years alone. It originally opened in 1888.
