The Lindsborg Post Office remains closed due to air quality concerns. The Post Office was initially closed Monday, November 10. Temporary centralized mailboxes have been installed outside the Lindsborg Post Office. Lindsborg customers can pick up their mail there.

“The safety of our employees and customers is our top concern,” Post Office Operations Manager Carla West said in a news release. “So we have temporarily suspended operations until we know it’s safe to return. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our customers, and we will keep them updated on any changes and progress.”

The air in the Lindsborg building is being tested, and if the air quality is determined to be unsafe, the building’s landlord will be notified so remediation can be made.

Rural route customers in the Lindsborg area have continued to receive mail delivery as usual; however, if they receive a notice for pickup of a package or letter requiring a signature, they will need to pick up the item at the Salina Post Office. Customers may also request the item be delivered another day. The phone number at the Salina Post Office is (785) 827-3695.

The blue collection box outside of the Lindsborg post office will continue to be operational. Mail will be picked up Monday through Saturday at the regularly scheduled time of 2:15 p.m. Stamp booklets may be purchased at Casey’s General Store in Lindsborg.

In addition to Salina, retail services are available in neighboring post offices, including Falun (weekday hours from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and Saturdays 8:15 to 9:15 a.m.); Assaria (weekday hours 7:30 to 11:30 a.m., and Saturdays 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.); and Marquette (weekday hours 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. and noon to 2 p.m., and Saturdays 8:30 to 9 a.m.).

Customers may buy stamps and ship packages through their rural carrier. Customers may also order stamps by mail (carriers have the forms), stamps by phone, 1-800-STAMP-24, or online at usps.com, where customers can also ship packages and request free package pickup.
