The plan is to move operations, not close them, he said, noting that the relocation can take up to six months. "All the employees, all the P.O. boxes and services will remain the same," Mr. Wigdel added. He said the carriers will pick up the mail in Palo Alto and then deliver to Menlo Park as usual.
According to the spokesman, the Postal Service plans to open a replacement office in Menlo Park that "will be substantially smaller. Right now, the Menlo Park Main Post Office is about 25,000 square feet and we will be looking for a space that is about 3,000 square feet," he said.
Menlo Park has two other post offices, at 655 Oak Grove Ave. and at 2120 Avy Ave.
