Changewater Post Office temporarily relocating

CHANGEWATER, NJ (Warren County) – Postal officials must relocate Post Office operations from the current Changewater Post Office, located at 11 Main Street, due to a loss of lease.

The property owner is not renewing the lease agreement with the Postal Service, which expires in December.

Effective close of business Friday, October 5, 2018, all Changewater Post Office operations will be relocated to the Washington Post Office, located at 36 Belvidere Ave.  Beginning Saturday, October 6, Changewater Post Office Box holders can pick-up their mail at the Washington Post Office.

Business hours at the Washington Post Office are:

P.O. Box Lobby Hours: 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  Monday – Friday and 7:45 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.  Saturday
Retail Window Services: 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.   Monday – Friday and 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Saturday

Postal officials are actively seeking an alternative location for the Changewater Post Office and will schedule a community meeting at a later time to discuss plans to identify the new location. In the interim, Northern New Jersey District postal officials are reassuring residents that they will continue to receive the same high level of customer service at the Washington Post Office that they have grown accustomed to receiving in Changewater.

Any questions from the community about service in Changewater can be directed Washington Postmaster Lenord Vandenhandel at 908-689-0443.
