According to Steve Doherty, the corporate communications contact for the USPS’s Greater Boston area, trailers will be the temporary home of the Bedford Post Office while work at the Bedford Marketplace is underway.  The first of the trailers was delivered to the parking lot, at the edge of the Marketplace property, facing Whole Foods Market on September 1.

Once utilities are hooked up and the move to the trailers is complete, the post office will be open for business until their new retail space is ready.  A window for buying stamps, shipping packages and other services will be in operation. There will be space for 500 post office boxes, so customers may still access their boxes in Bedford.

According to unconfirmed reports, the Bedford Post Office’s final retail facility will be in the general area, in the new buildings going up behind where Luigi’s now stands.

The renovation of the new retail facility is expected to take 90 days from the time work begins, probably in mid-September.  If the schedule goes as planned, residents could be mailing their holiday cards in the new facility.
