The Chattanooga East Lake Finance Station will be emergency suspended effective Aug. 30, United States Postal Service officials announced today.
The operations of the station, located at 2600 E. 34th St., will move to Chattanooga South Station, located at 1101 W. 40th St.
Officials said that post office box holders are being notified directly regarding future delivery options.
"The Postal Service could not come to financial terms with the lessor," Chattanooga Postmaster Pete Dechelle said in a prepared statement. "Due to the financial constraints under which the USPS is operating, we're going to emergency suspend this facility."
There are no carriers located at East Lake; street delivery in the 37407 ZIP code will be unaffected by the change. This location is retail-only with post office boxes.
