Location of Charlie Lake post office still uncertain

Canada Post is still trying to find a more permanent location to distribute mail to its Charlie Lake customers.

Spokesperson Theresa Williams says the company is looking at operating out of a trailer in Charlie Lake.

However, she says nothing has been signed, and the company is still searching for both a trailer and land.

She says it could take anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks, to get the location set-up. Williams says she will make an announcement as soon as that information becomes available.

The new location will only be temporary, until the Charlie Lake store is ready to reopen.

Last Tuesday, the Charlie Lake postal outlet suffered water and smoke damage after a fire started. The store held around one thousand boxes. Charlie Lake Fire Chief Al Pinkerton says the fire could have started due to an electrical problem, but with the extent of damage, he can’t say for sure.

In the meantime, Charlie Lake customers can still pick up their mail from the Fort St. John post office, located at 10139 101st avenue. Residents are asked to pick up their mail from 12pm-3pm.
