Need Mail Service in the Town of Sugar Hill? You've Got 30 Minutes

As of this week, residents of Sugar Hill have a very narrow window to pick up stamps and drop off mail. The town’s post office, which had been open three hours a day, is now open for one half hour a day, 10:15 to 10:45 am. After that, residents will have to drive to nearby towns like Lisbon or Franconia.

Lissa Boissonneault is Sugar Hill’s town clerk and tax collector, which makes her a regular customer at the post office. She tells All Things Considered host Brady Carlson how residents are taking this news.

A spokeswoman for the US Postal Service, by the way, told the Union Leader the following: “Sugar Hill is not a post office but classified as a NPU- NonPersonnel Unit where a rural carrier stops by on his/her route, services boxes and quickly provides money orders or stamps.”
