After 50 years of serving the community, the Dresher post office will close its doors on Friday. According to a report in the Ambler Gazette, the owner of the building, Mike Sloane, said finances lead to the decision to close the location. Sloane is also the owner the Mercedes-Benz Fort Washington.
Sloane told the Gazette, "The postal service made the decision not to remain at the site when faced with either putting on a new roof for the building or having the rent increased to pay for needed improvement costs."
Residents with post office boxes, as well as employees and mail will be moved and routed through the Fort Washington post office.
