Brookhaven’s post office is moving at the end of the month

The U.S. post office at 3351 Peachtree Road closes March 26, said Michael Miles, spokesman for the United States Postal Service’s Atlanta district.

The new post office, located at 1920 Dresden Drive, will open March 28, Miles said.

The new Brookhaven post office is being located in the North Atlanta Carrier Facility, offering services similar to the old one, Miles said. It will have three windows to serve customers and 31 parking spaces. “It’ll be pretty much the same, with the same hours,” he said.

In the past, the Dresden Drive facility was not open to the public, but used as a “carrier staging facility,” Miles said, offering a base for carriers serving several nearby ZIP Codes. “It’s pretty large,” he said.

The Brookhaven post office is moving from its current site in the Cherokee Plaza Shopping Center, Miles said, because officials could not reach a lease renewal agreement with the property’s owners.
