Ballard Post Office may not renew lease

The U.S. post office at NW 57th & 17th Ave. may not renew its lease.

The post office for the 98107 zip code has been in its current location for the past couple of decades, but is considering moving. Employees tell us that the new location for the post office will be at the carrier annex near Fred Meyer in six to nine months. (Thanks Kim for the tip!)

Update: Ernie Swanson, public information officer for the post office, says the lease on the property is up for renewal the beginning of next year. He said they’re considering several options before making a decision whether to sign a new lease, including moving to the carrier annex near Fred Meyer. The post office is not being “forced” to move, as several employees had told us earlier.
