After six long months being closed to the public, the historical Steveston Post Office has finally re-opened its doors.
The post office, which doubles as a museum and tourism hub for the village, closed on March 17, along with hundreds of other community-run facilities.
However, the post office operators - Steveston Historical Society – decided the time was right to open the Moncton Street building to the public once again.
And the society’s president, Linda Barnes, is urging villagers and tourists to support the post office, with any profits generated going back to the charity and, hence, the community.
“It provides all the usual post office services, however, the museum and tourism services are both still closed. The washrooms are also closed,” Barnes, a former city councillor, told the Richmond News.
“We see it as a service to the community and a communication hub, so it would be great to see people coming back again.
“We operate this for the community, so we’re hoping the community, in turn, comes back to support the society.”
Steveston Post Office hours are Monday-Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday noon to 4 p.m.
