post office

The Unalaska post office has had reduced service for months. But officials say that's due to staffing shortages — not an attempt to shutter the branch

"No, there is nothing in the works for closing a post office in Unalaska/Dutch Harbor," said Dawn Peppinger, a marketing manager for the U.S. Postal Service. "There are no plans for that."

Currently, the Unalaska post office is open for package pick-up on weekdays from noon until 4 p.m. Counter service also reopened recently so patrons can buy stamps.
