According to the USPS list of closures, the Rhode Island Ave NE location (at 2211 RI Ave) is on that dreaded list. A post office is a big loss for a community. We lose the ability to buy stamps, do our postal business, etc by simply walking to it (for most). Also, all of the people who have PO Boxes at this location will no longer have them.
The biggest lose for RI Ave is the fact that we will have yet another empty store front along our “Main Street”.
