“This unique structure is one of a few of its kind in the country and the very first in Indiana.” says Doland Wise, Fishers Postmaster. “The new postal facility is totally self-service and is located in a free-standing building with 24-hour access,” he adds. “We are really excited about the convenience this contemporary unit will provide to our customers on the east side of Fishers who require postal and shipping services. Two Automated Postal Centers (APCs) are housed in the building and more than 200 post office boxes will be offered for rent.” During the grand opening week of April 1st, a postal representative will be on hand from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to assist customers unfamiliar with the APC.
