The U.S. Postal Service is planning to award a contract in late June or early July to begin construction at its new site at 2309 Como Ave., according to USPS spokesperson Pete Nowacki, “provided bids come in within our budget.”
Construction usually takes about 90 days, he said, and the postal service is looking at a late September opening.
The Como Station post office had been at 2286 Como Ave. since 1970. It closed in November 2015, after the building was purchased by Frattallone’s Ace Hardware, which opened this spring. The storefront at 2309 Como was once home to Miller Pharmacy, an antique store and most recently the eyewear and eye-care store, Eyedeals.
