Sugarhill, N.H. Post Office Now Open Only 30 Minutes Each Day

SUGAR HILL, N.H. (AP) — A rural post office in northern New Hampshire is now open just a half-hour a day for customers to buy stamps.

No other services are available at the Sugar Hill post office across from Town Hall. A rural carrier from Lisbon is running it from 10:15 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Customers found out Friday when they saw a notice posted on the door.

Lisbon Postmaster Ron Spaulding tells theCaledonian Record  the decision comes out of the Northern New England District office of the United States Postal Service. Messages left with the operations manager were not returned.

The town offices and local businesses use the post office regularly.

The Sugar Hill office survived an effort to close it in 1991.
