New Post Office celebrates grand opening
A new Post Office in Hillsborough celebrated its grand opening Thursday, March 10, and its owners declared themselves “ready to serve the Hillsborough and Chapel Hill customers in grand fashion.”
Eagles Chief Operating Officer Kuntal Gandhi and Hillsborough Postmaster Tom Pollard presided over a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Contract Postal Unit at Eagles Convenience Store #5, 620 Hampton Pointe in Hillsborough. The Eagles CPU is open six days a week—Monday through Friday— from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is one of 21 CPUs in the Triangle Area, all serving as convenient alternatives to traditional Post Offices.
“This office will help to increase convenience and access to postal services for customers unable to travel to the main Post Office,” said Pollard, who oversees the Eagles CPU. “A full line of postal products and services are available at the new CPU including postage stamps, Express Mail® service, Priority Mail® service, special services, packaging products, and much more. We are very excited for the residents of Hillsborough and the community at large.”
