Yigo contract postal unit to reopen July 6


The U.S. Postal Service announced today that the Yigo Contract Postal Unit located at 244 Gayinero Drive will reopen for business next Tuesday, July 6. The facility will resume its PO Box and retail services and its previous hours of operation: 9:00-11:00 a.m. and 2:00-5:00 p.m. on weekdays, and 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

“We apologize to our customers who were inconvenienced by the temporary closure of this facility,” said Guam Postmaster Tammy Schoenen. “We’ve been pushing hard to get the facility reopened because we understand how important the mail is to our customers.”

Contract Postal Units are supplier-owned or supplier-leased facilities operated by private vendors, under contract to the Postal Service to provide postal products and services to the public at U.S. Postal Service prices.

“We’re also working hard to reopen the Dededo Contract Postal Unit as soon as possible. I want to thank its customers for their continued patience as we work through logistic and operational matters related to the reopening of that facility.”

Until the Dededo CPU reopens, its customers will continue to be served over the counter at the Barrigada Post Office. Barrigada is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week for those customers to retrieve their mail.

A self-supporting government enterprise, the U.S. Postal Service is the only delivery service that reaches every address in the nation: 152 million residences, businesses and Post Office Boxes. The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations. With more than 31,000 retail locations and the most frequently visited website in the federal government, usps.com, the Postal Service has annual revenue of more than $65 billion and delivers nearly 40 percent of the world’s mail. If it were a private-sector company, the U.S. Postal Service would rank 42nd in the 2012 Fortune 500. The Postal Service has been named the Most Trusted Government Agency for seven years and the fourth Most Trusted Business in the nation by the Ponemon Institute.
