Technical issues shutter Ganges post office
Mail delivery still taking place
Salt Spring’s main post office remains closed for the third day running as technicians attempt to repair a problem with the main computer’s motherboard.
Staff hope to re-open for business as usual on Monday.
The Ganges post office first announced on Wednesday, Nov. 1 that major technical issues would keep the office closed for at least that day. The wait for the part necessary to repair the motherboard and for a technician to do the work apparently caused further delays.
An update from the post office issued this afternoon states that technicians hope to have the issue resolved by the end of today.
The Ganges post office states regular mail delivery has not been impacted by the situation. Couriers have been able to deliver letters and packages as usual, while any mail deposited into outgoing mail slots is being collected and put into the mail stream. Customers needing postal services have been directed to the Fulford post office while the disruption continues. The Fulford location is open until 6 p.m.
