The old Pinecrest post office at South Dixie Highway and 131st Street is now closed. Soon the building will be razed and Baptist Health will be putting up a medical building in its place.
So where are we to go now? The answer is head towards The Falls! Just across from the shopping center is Total Wine. Adjacent to that is the totally new post office retail storefront. Inside is a bank of PO boxes, a self-serve area and a nicely appointed counter.
You'll notice that I did not mention distribution. This post office is nothing more than a glorified outpost. There are no drive-up mailboxes either.
My bigger concern is what happens as we get towards the holiday months... With traffic already gridlocked by just the mall, this should get interesting.
