As of today, the historic Post Office in Downtown Lakewood is closed. The longtime postal facility on Clifton Avenue, which has been slated for closure for several years, is scheduled to be sold this month.
The 19,342-square-foot, 1930s art deco-style building has been a downtown hub for many years, but officials say it is underutilized and no longer efficient. As a result, many services were moved to the more modern facility roughly two miles away in the Industrial Park.
All Lakewood post office retail operations moved to the Lakewood Postal Facility located at 1820 Swarthmore Avenue. P.O. boxes remain with the same numbers, and same keys.
