Nevada City gains Village Post Office

Customers shopping for groceries at Rainbow Market will now find postage, Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes and envelopes in the grocery aisle when the store becomes a Village Post Office. Fanfare to celebrate the store becoming a VPO will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. on Thursday, at the Rainbow Market, on 16797 Highway 49, Nevada City.

Rainbow Market proprietor Maggie Maloney has been in business for 17 years and is very pleased that her store will become a VPO.

“Having Rainbow Market as another outlet for purchasing postage will provide convenience and accessibility for my community,” said Maloney.

VPOs are usually located in established businesses, giving them the added retail advantage of providing customers convenient access to the postal products and services they use most often.

Customers are able to purchase Forever Stamps, drop off prepaid mail and packages and pick up Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes and envelopes. The convenience for customers is that many VPOs offer expanded business hours, including Sundays and holidays.

Manager of Post Office Operations Jamie Biskner and Nevada City Postmaster Kenneth Wiens will join Maloney in the grand opening ceremonies.
