The Mobile Post Office operated from
the parking lot of the Noxen Food Mart between 2006 and early 2009.
The Noxen Post Office, formerly housed in a
historic Victorian building on Main Street, was damaged during the June,
2006 flood. The operation was moved to a mobile unit in the
parking lot of the Noxen Food Mart on Route 29 until a permanent location
could be located, but that facility was temporarily closed early in 2009.
Currently, the future of the Noxen Post
Office is uncertain, and the branch is in danger of being closed
permanently. Representative Chris Carney has co-sponsored
H.R. 658 to modify the procedures governing the closure or
consolidation of postal facilities. Meanwhile, efforts are
underway to have the post office relocated to the restored train depot,
but until then Noxen is without a post office of any sort.
