Bangor Post Office Finds a New Home 

A round of applause welcomed the Bangor Post Office to its new location downtown.On Monday morning, doors opened for business at its new Hammond Street home. The Post Office signed a twenty year lease with Penobscot County to renovate and use the former District Court building.Last May, the Office’s lease ran out on its space inside the Federal Building on Harlow Street, and it had to temporarily relocate to Broadway. The brand new facility has upgrades such as more mail lockers and space for employees to work. One of its more attractive features is onsite parking, which the original location did not have.Business hours will be Monday through Friday, 8:00-5:00 p.m. and Saturday, 9:00-1:00 p.m.
