Renovations mean move for Masset post office

  • Aug. 10, 2011 2:00 p.m.

The Masset post office is going to be moving soon. A whole new upgrade is happening, causing the Main Street post office to temporarily re-locate. “We don’t have a place to move to yet, so we aren’t certain when the renovations will happen,” said postmaster Rita Malinski, (August) “19th maybe, hopefully, but we still have to find a place first.” Ms Malinski hopes they will find a place close to where the post office is now, to make the move easier.The renovations are expected to take three weeks to a month to complete.The post offices in Port and Sandspit are also being upgraded, but the Masset office needs a lot more attention, and is the only one needing to re-locate.When the work is done, Masset’s post office will follow Canada Post’s national standards and have wheelchair access.Although it isn’t certain yet when the renovations will happen, Ms Malinski believes it will be within the next two months, and hopes to find a place to move into soon.
