After almost 18 months of operating out of two "temporary" trailers, a permanent United States Post Office retail location has returned to Bedford. According to Bedford Postmaster Bill Booker, the new location opened at 8 am on February 21st. The new location is in the Bedford Marketplace at 158J Great Road which is between Bruegger's Bagels and Barre 3.
|New lobby of the Bedford post office. The lobby is open for self service 24 hours a day.|
|The temporary trailers near Red Heat will soon be moved out of Bedford Marketplace. The sign on the door states that the new location is now open.|
1. It's good to finally see the new Post Office open. This gives Bedford Marketplace more of a Town Center feel. The additional foot traffic will also be beneficial to adjacent businesses such as Simply Nail & Spa and Barre 3 by enabling Post Office customers to discover them as they walk by.
2. The USPS Employees I spoke with, all went out of their way to express their appreciation for the patience of Bedford residents and businesses and how happy they are that the new location is now open.
