People living in West Farmington are concerned about the closure of its post office.

The post office at 226 E Main Street has been closed since mid-February.

The closure leaves many people with a five-and-a-half-mile drive to the next closest post office on State Route 88 in Bristolville. Residents living along Main Street and Third Street are still receiving mail but people on side streets or with P.O. boxes have to make the seven-minute drive.

The West Farmington Post Office closed in November 2023 for about a week due to a gas leak. 

21 News has reached out to the United States Postal Service about the closure but so far a reason hasn't been given.
