Closed for the past three days as a result of the Goodwin Fire evacuation, the Mayer Post Office at 12795 E. Central Ave. reopened today (Friday, June 30), Postmaster Debra Jevitt announced.
“We appreciate all the firefighters’ hard work in protecting our community and also our customers’ patience during the closure,” Jevitt said.
