Woman Runs Post Office From Her Home

Pennsylvania's Progress website reports, "People patronize post offices every day for one thing or another - to buy stamps, get money orders or to pick up mail - but few go to a post office that's inside someone's home."

Staff writer Terry Whetstone pens, "That's the situation in Glen Hope for Annie Hawkins. She just celebrated her 42nd anniversary of running the post office, which is in her home. She and her husband, Herb, have lived with the post office in their home for the 42 years she has worked there."

According to the article, "There are about 75 customers who get their mail on a daily basis at the post office and while the post office is quite small compared to others, she said it offers the typical items, stamps, money orders, bulk mailing, etc. Annie said that through the years as children from the borough have gone off to college they bring their friends with them to check out the small post office when they come home on breaks."
