USPS says that customers can be assured that between June 18-21, any mail and packages still in the possession of the Postal Service, will be held safe and secure until the transition is complete.

P.O. Box customers will maintain the same P.O. Box number, and most will be able to access their box with the same key, says USPS, and customers who require a new key will be notified and given further instructions. 

Access to P.O. Boxes at the new location will be from 6 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Sunday, a change from the North Austin location, which had 24-hour P.O. Box access, 7 days a week.

Retail hours of operation at the Northcross Station are 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and closed on Saturday and Sunday. Mail delivery to residential and business addresses will not be affected by this move, says USPS.
