Downtown Post Office Closure Hinges On Survey

Cheraw postal customers are being asked to watch their mail for a Customer Questionnaire, the results of which may determine the fate of the Downtown Cheraw Post Office.

The survey, which is being sent by the US Postal Service at the request of Cheraw Mayor Andy Ingram, asks 14 questions regarding service, accessibility, and convenience of the downtown location as well as the customer's support of the move to the carrier annex on highway 9.
Once the questionnaire is complete, customers must place it, postage free, in their mailbox for the carrier or return it to the Downtown Post Office on Market Street no later than Friday, October 12.

"I am asking every resident in the 29520 zip to please complete this survey," Mayor Ingram said. "The downtown post office, which has been at the corner of Market and Thirds streets for almost 80 years may close if the United States Postal Service does not hear from its local customers, or if they make the wrong choice.

"The survey is vital for the future of our post office." Ingram explained. "I am encouraging all residents to answer the survey in a way which clearly indicates the downtown facility should remain open."
