Village Post Office Open at Harmony Museum Shop

The Village Post Office returns the convenience of basic postal retail services lost to residents and businesses when lease expiration closed Harmony’s Post Office at the Municipal Building in mid-2009.

Harmony’s former Post Office occupied the same Wagner House space for many decades before being moved to the Municipal Building in 1967.

As the Postal Service is informing area customers, the new Village Post Office offers "popular Postal products and services. With convenient hours and location, you can mail letters and ship your Flat-Rate Priority packages right where you shop." Customers can buy Forever stamp booklets, obtain free Priority Mail Flat Rate supplies, drop off postage-prepaid packages for Postal Service pickup, and deposit mail in a sidewalk collection box. They will also enjoy free parking adjacent to the Museum Shop.

Retail postal services are available during regular Museum Shop hours: Tuesday-Saturday noon-4 p.m. and Sundays 1 to 4 p.m.. It is closed on Mondays and holidays.
