  • Buffalo Post Office to re-open


    The Buffalo Post Office will reopen Saturday, Nov. 2.

    The post office was closed in July due to a brown recluse spider infestation.

    “We apologize for any inconvenience this caused our customers,” said Rosemary Miller, Manager of Post Office Operations. “As you can imagine, we are very happy to be able to reopen the Buffalo Post Office for the community.” 

    Miller said the landlord worked diligently with local exterminators to get rid of the spiders since the emergency closure in July.
