The post office in downtown North Platte is officially closed as of 11:30 AM this morning, and the move has a lot of small business owners around North Platte very frustrated. Post office services will move from 3rd Street to Industrial Avenue on the east side of town. The move will allow the United States Postal Service to save money while still serving the community, just in a different location.
North Platte residents say the lack of a downtown postal service causes inconveniences for the people of North Platte, and to help the downtown business owners, the postal service is putting a Contract Postal Unit in Ace Hardware store.
