Customers who visit the North Decatur Post Office at North DeKalb Mall will temporarily have to retrieve their mail and drop off packages at the main branch in Decatur.
“The North Decatur Post Office, also known as the Decatur Market Square Post Office, is closed for repairs,” a spokesperson for the Postal Service said. “We continue to work with the building’s owner on this matter and the facility is expected to reopen in late August. North Decatur Post Office Box customers can retrieve their mail at the Decatur Main Post Office at 520 W. Ponce De Leon Avenue, Decatur, GA 30030, in the interim. Full retail services are also available.”
A reader who is a customer there said they were told the office closed due to mold problems.
In a follow up email, the Postal Service spokesperson said, “The Postal Service closed the facility for repairs to address visual evidence of water damage to the facility’s ceiling and walls. We are working with the building’s owner on this matter. Testing for potential mold is underway. The facility is expected to reopen in late August after repairs and safety concerns are fully addressed.”
