New Village Post Office opens at Copalis Crossing


Sharon Voss, owner of Voss Acres Produce, officially opened the Copalis Crossing Village Post Office on Tuesday. As the USPS continues to close rural post offices as a cost-cutting measure, Voss Acres has agreed to open its doors for basic postal services in preparation for when the Copalis Crossing Post Office closes at an unannounced date. Without the village office, Copalis crossing residents would have to drive to Ocean Shores to mail packages. Voss said she knew a lot of people in her community would find it difficult to travel to there. “I am very pleased it would come here,” she said.
