Mobile Post Office Parked in Yemassee

Posted: Updated:
Yemassee, S.C. -

Beep beep! Mails here!!

Thanks to a new mobile post office located outside of Yemassee's town hall

"It's fun watching it roll all over town, not many people can say they have a mobile post office, so I think its pretty neat," said Tammy Lane.

Neat, and useful for the neighbors in this small town who haven't had a post office in months, now they can just drive through and either pick up or drop off their mail. And locals like Lane are thrilled!

"I love it! I think it's just what the town needs, it's mobile, it can travel around, I think it's perfect, the only thing is, is that we cant use a debit or credit card, but other than that its fine until we get a regular post office."

The old post office closed in December.

Since then folks have had to drive out of their way for postal services.

"We were having to travel about 7-miles one way to early branch and of course we had to go by their hours, so this has been a blessing to have this here in a central location, town hall," said Lane.

"Oh it had been rough you know, because we had to go somewhere else, and we live in the community and we had to go some place else for mail, and stamps and all that stuff," said Bobby Brown.

But not everyone is thrilled, Evelyn Fennell says she's ready for a permanent location.

"It's ridiculous, why do we have to put up with all this when we pay taxes."

But overall folks say this is only temporary.

"I just want to see a nice post office in this town, so I don't have to go too far for mail and stuff"
