Tyner; Tippecanoe offices under review

July 28, 2011

INDIANAPOLIS — The Tyner and Tippacanoe post offices are two of around 95 low-activity post offices in Indiana placed recently on a list for review by the United States Postal Service (USPS).
Mary Dando, a USPS representative, said Wednesday that the fact that the offices were under review did not necessarily mean they would be closing.
“They are on the list — that means they are under study, but there won’t be a decision made one way or the other until December (or later),” said Dando.
Dando said that the criteria for a post office being considered “low activity” includes the following:
• Low foot traffic
• Average sales of less than $50 a day
• Less than 2 hours of work a day
“The postal service is in a very difficult situation,” said Dando. “We are required to operate as a business.”
Fortunately, a solution is being considered that would benefit small town businesses and keep postal service in the area. Dando said that people have expressed concern in the past about their town losing its identity, or zip code. She said that the USPS is considering having what she called “the village post office” in towns such as Tyner and Tippecanoe.
In this case, the post office would be moved into an existing building such as a grocery store, town hall, or library, increasing traffic for the post office as well as bringing more customers to the building.
Dando said that if this situation were to take place, “it will be a seamless transition, (with) no break in service.”
An added benefit to the village post office, Dando added, might be weekend service and extended hours.
While the post offices are under review for the next several months, Dando expressed that residents need not be concerned.
“Should (the post offices) close, there will be something there to serve (residents) equally well,” said Dando.

The tyner post office will officially be closed sept 27th and will be in a centralized location at the tyner community building or you can get a po box at plymouth, donaldson or walkerton indiana.
the post office should extend their rural route for those who would rather have a mailbox at their home. i am disabled and so are a few other family members in tyner that would benefit from a mailbox at their home. i have a turn around so they dont have to back out into the road.
any questions on how the post office closing affects you call the plymouth post office and ask for Julie Milliser at 574-936-2629 or email her at
she has been very helpful in answering any questions and in your letter from the plymouth post office to tyner residents it lists both her email and the plymouth post office #.

i dont care about 24 hour access. i want my p o box or whatever the post office choose for our mail inside. what kind of protection do the elderly and disabled have from the weather etc when it rains snows etc at the tyner community building and what about locks freezing etc. have it inside the fire station with a cut off time to pick up mail of 5 or 6 pm. surely they have some available space near the front or off to the side away from the fire truck garage.

Tyner Post Office

I live in tyner and for a few years wondered on whether the post office would remain open. some of the residents feel that the grocery store is the ideal place as it would help the elderly and ones with health problems in many ways such as being in one place for groceries and postal needs. with the possiblity of the post office closing the P O Boxes would be inside not out in the bad weather. The store owners are wonderful people and are willing to have the post office put there.They can handle the job of running both businesses very well. There was talk of the rural mail delivery person in the Tyner area taking on putting the mail in the P O Boxes but having them otdoors and extending their route and hours. If thats the case great but have the P O Boxes in the store and let her deliver the mail there. The store owners can handle the selling of postal supplies and giving postal customers any packages they have. Running to Wakerton is not working out to get your packages.
Please put the Post office in the grocery store in tyner. This is a solution best for everye.

if no decision has been made on the tyner post office closing why have the government officials running the post office shut the power off? as usual we are being kept in the dark. ( information wise and power wise ). Nipsco shut the power off last week.

Apparently The Tyner Post office is closing. Thanks for letting us know!!!
Last week Nipsco shut the power off. Come on at least have lightd
s and heat until the post office is officially closed for good ( meaning mail arrangements made for the po box customers and doors and building locked up for good ).
Doesnt say much for the government office controlling the post office when they resort to making people fumble around in the dark to get their mail.
