GRAND OPENING.

Board of Governors; and Seaford Postmaster Rob Kern as they cut the ribbon on the New Seaford Post Office, located on Alt. 13 in Seaford. The new building at the corner of alternate US 13 and Herring Run Road, replaces the High Street post office, built in 1936. The new building, a standard Postal Service design, is 18,000 square feet in size, compared to 9,500 square feet for the old building. Much of that difference is in the work area - employees now have nearly 13,000 square feet in which to sort mail, as compared to 4,000 square feet in the old building. The new post office features stamp machines from which customers can purchase stamps 24 hours a day. It also has a scale on which customers can weigh packages; the scale not only reads the weight, but tells the customer how much shipment of the package costs.
