Delivery Guy


Outgoing Mail :  There is an outgoing mail slot in the post office which is picked up Monday - Saturday.


Incoming Mail:  Mail from the US Postal Service is delivered to the Lake Forest post office Monday through Saturday.   The prior owner of your house should leave the key and box number to your Lake Forest mailbox.  You will need to file a normal change of address with the post office to start receiving your mail in the Lake Forest post office.   Please contact the Sainte Genevieve location of the U.S. post office at 135 Merchant St., Sainte Genevieve, MO 63670 if the prior resident does not leave you the key or number to your box.  The Lake Forest office is not able to put anything in these mailboxes or remove anything.  They are the property of the United States Postal Service.

For larger deliveries that come through the USPS that will not fit in your mailbox, there are numbered lockable cabinets in the Lake Forest post office.  If you receive such a delivery, the mail carrier will put a numbered key inside your regular mailbox.  Use that key to retrieve your package from one of the lockable cabinets.  Leave the cabinet unlocked and drop the key in the outgoing USPS mail slot on the wall, so the mail carrier will be able to retrieve the key for use by another delivery.  

UPS and FEDEX deliveries will be made to your residence.
