Mail Available in Goderich

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

Canada Post has set up a temporary pick-up spot at Suncoast Mall in Goderich.

The tornado that hit Goderich last weekend has stopped Canada Post letter-carriers in their tracks.

Canada Post Spokesperson Tom Creech says an alternative has been set up to make sure you get your mail.

A pick-up point will start operation in the Suncoast Mall on Monday and will operate weekdays from 11 AM till 5 PM.

It's the only place in Goderich where you'll be able to pick up letters and packages.

Creech says you must show a form of photo-ID like your drivers licence or health card to get your mail.

The amount of debris on the streets combined with the "no-go" zone in the core means letter-carriers cannot do their jobs.

Creech says there will be no door-to-door mail delivery for some time.

He does have good news for residents immediately outside Goderich.

Some rural mail delivery will resume and rural delivery employees will be based out of the Post Office in Clinton.

The Goderich Post office on East Street was not as heavily damaged as many other buildings in the core but Creech says it will have to be checked before it can be re-occupied.

The Post Office is inside the yellow tape marking the security zone set up downtown.
