24-hour kiosk to open at Columbus post office

Retail services at post offices throughout Indiana will be closed today in recognition of Veterans Day. Regularly scheduled mail delivery, P.O. box and caller services will also be suspended for the holiday, the U.S. Postal Service announced.

However, customers requiring postal services can use the self-service kiosk available at select post offices, including the Columbus location at 450 Jackson St.

The ATM-like kiosk, which accepts debit and credit cards only, can handle 80 percent of the transactions conducted at the retail counter such as buying stamps, mailing a parcel, or shipping an urgent letter or package by Express or Priority Mail. Access to the kiosk is available 24 hours a-day, seven days a week.
