New Post Office Running Smoothly
Written by Paul on December 3, 2019
The new Kahnawake Post officially opened its doors at 8:30 Monday morning at the old Turn 4 restaurant in the Tewatohnhi’saktha building. Linda Benwell is the assistant Post Master in Kahnawake. “The move on Friday went pretty smoothly. we were pretty coordinated and it actually went pretty well. It was a bit close getting it ready to open yesterday morning but we pulled it through,” she said.
In the expanded space the new post office has nearly doubled the amount of mail boxes for community members. But Benwell says it may take a while for people to get used to the new location. “A lot of people are not very happy with having to go to two different places. They find it inconvenient for the elders going to the bank and to the post at two different locations, even though it is close because in the winter time it is slippery,” Benwell said.
