Two post offices

Section: 
Letter

To MP Ben Lobb:

 

Is there a need for two post offices in Kincardine - one downtown and one at Shoppers Drugmart?

 

I hear people say they can’t use the downtown post office as it is too busy at lunch time and closes at 4:30 p.m. Hours of service can be adjusted.

 

The Shoppers Drug Mart is not even convenient. You need a car to get there. It is not on the highest traffic route nor near a residential area. Apparently all parcels will go to Shoppers.

 

Canada Post is raising stamp prices and cutting some essential services. Yet they waste money duplicating post offices across the country. This is not a good way to manage the economy. Does Canada Post have an agreement with Shoppers Drug Mart to put post offices in their stores as has happened in Kincardine and Port Elgin?
