Mail Delivery Problems Plague Jamaica Plain

Last updated on February 25, 2015

Several residents have told Jamaica Plain News that they’ve received no mail for three or more days.

“I don’t know what the problem is,” said Polly Puner of Perkins Street, who hasn’t had mail delivered since Wednesday.

Puner, who lives across from the MSPCA, said her newspaper gets delivered every day, so why not the U.S. mail?

A Bourne neighborhood resident, who did not want to give her name, has stopped relying on the Post Office for delivery of her medications. Instead, she picks them up in person now.

Richard Heath, who also lives in the Bourne neighborhood, said he and his wife have not received mail in four days.

Another Bourne resident Tweeted about the missed mail:

Puner said she got through to the JP Post Office late Saturday and was told that mail carriers are out there and to call again Monday if the problem continues.

The JP Post Office has been in the news recently as candidate for a possible relocation away from their custom-built digs at 655 Centre St.
