New River Post Office closed

The U.S. Post Office in New River has been closed.

The Patriot learned of the closing Tuesday.

“The Pulaski County Board of Supervisors and County Administration learned at the beginning of this week that the U.S. Post Office in the New River Community has been closed indefinitely as of last Wednesday,” Cloyd District Supervisor Joe Guthrie told the paper today (Wednesday).

“We are working now to learn more about the situation and have reached out to our state and federal officials for their immediate assistance,” he added.

“It is our sincere hope that this post office can be reopened and continue to serve the people of the New River community,” Guthrie continued.

The post office is located at 6461 New River Road in the New River community.

The Patriot has contacted the U.S. Postal Service for details on the closing, however, they have yet to respond.
