Lufkin post office to close down at end of month

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The US Postal service announced Wednesday that the downtown Lufkin post office will be closing, towards the end of April.

According to the US Postal Service, the cause for the closure, which is effective April 27, is stated as a termination of the facility's lease.

Owners of post office boxes at the downtown location on Lufkin Avenue are being told that their box numbers will stay the same, but that they'll just need to get a new key before they are moved to the main location, on South John Reddit.

The postmaster at the Lufkin's main post office was not available for comment.
