Downtown Washington Inc. CPU
located in the historic “Old Main Post Office”
serving your postal needs since November 1, 1922.
This location is a Contract Postal Unit (CPU)
of the United States Postal Service (USPS), and we can do almost everything that the Post Office does at the same price, but a portion of your purchase stay here in downtown Washington.
Since we are an independant contractor for USPS, we earn commission. Therefore, when you purchase stamps here 9% is reinvested into downtown Washington and packages reinvest 20%!
We offer all postal services at the same prices as USPS,
Except processing passports and postal money orders.
We accept many utility payments such as Ameren, Laclede Gas, Missouri Natural Gas AT&T and many others.
The payments must be made in cash and carry fees ranging
from $1.00 - $5.00 depending on the service.
