Following a year of public comments and community meetings, the U.S. Postal Service has decided to shut down the Lihue, Kauai Post Office on Rice Street.  Postal activities will be shifted to the Carrier Annex facility at the Lihue, Kauai airport.

According to the U.S. Postal Service, the closing of the Lihue, Kauai Post office is final:

“The Postal Service has determined that the relocation is the optimal solution to satisfy its need to improve operational efficiency and reduce the financial burdens facing the organization. The relocation will allow the Lihue Post Office to consolidate its delivery and retail operations, which are currently split between the two facilities.”

“The Postal Service carefully considered the concerns about the relocation proposal expressed at community meetings held in Lihue on Feb. 23 and Oct. 11 and in appeals and comments received before and after those meetings.”
