St. Davids Post Office Closing Friday
Post office boxes will be moved to the Wayne Post Office.
Friday, November 18 will be the last day of business for the St. Davids post office, which has survived multiple moves over multiple decades but did not survive the United States Postal Service's reduction plan.
It's "very sad" said local resident and longtime user Arthur O'Neill.
St. Davids resident Ted Pollard has also been using the branch for decades three or four times a week. Pollard said going to the Wayne Post Office will add congestion to the downtown.
And then there's the parking. Multiple people in a span of a few minutes in the post office branch Thursday lamented going to the Wayne post office because of a lack of free and readily available parking.
So what will people do?
"I'll go to the Wayne Post Office and stand in long lines," Pollard said.
A sign indicating that the St. Davids branch would close appeared about three weeks ago. The building that houses it, a former home, is owned by Bryn Mawr Trust Co.
