VASHON, Wash. — The U.S. Postal Service is confirming for KOMO 4 News that hundreds of pieces of mail have been lost after going to a Seattle area processing center.
It was mail sent from Vashon Island from March 1 to March 3, dropped at three locations near downtown Vashon.
Customers say it’s easy to take the U.S. mail for granted. But when it’s lost, it’s quite a mess.
At Island Lumber, contractors and others who get billed later were not paying their bills.
"We started receiving phone calls," said Island Lumber administrator Gina Davis, "and customers coming in wanting to know where their statements were."
