That's interesting, and a bit weird to me.  Here, post offices open,
close, move around, merge and split - and it makes no difference to my
address.  There is no post office in my suburb, though there are two
near by.  I have no idea which (if any) of those two my mail delivery
actually comes from, and it could be neither - there is a bigger one a
bit further away and for all I know the delivery people are based
