The U.S. Postal Services advised that retail services, including mail and package pickup, have been relocated to:

Yreka Post Office, 401 S Broadway Street, Yreka, CA 96097-9998.

This post office is open for retail counter services, Monday – Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. The location is closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

For business customers, drop shipment hours are Monday – Friday from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm.

Evacuations have been ordered in the area, which impacts mail delivery. USPS confirmed in a bulletin that road closures are creating some delays.

Merchants Should Monitor USPS Shipments to Area

Historically, tracking of mail into areas impacted by natural disasters or other emergencies can be erratic and show significant pauses of no activity.

Online merchants and sellers should monitor USPS shipments destined to the 3-digit zip code of 960 for any unusual delays.
