PLANT CITY The downtown post office has been closed due to deteriorating conditions in the nearly 80-year-old building's basement.

It's not clear when the building at 301 W. Reynolds might reopen. All postal services, including post offices boxes, have been moved to the Plant City Walden Woods Main Post Office, 2501 Walden Woods Drive.

Postal spokeswoman Enola C. Rice said the building is expected to reopen but she didn't know when. Deteriorating conditions in the basement discovered in a routine inspection forced the closure this morning, she said.

The post office near the downtown historic district, with slightly more than 16,000 square feet of space, opened in 1935.

The Walden Woods post office opened in 1996.

Customers with notices to pick up mail or packages can pick them up at the Walden Woods post office.

Lobby hours there are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Stamps are also available for sale in Plant City at CVS, 403 N. Alexander St.; Walgreens, 2102 W. Baker St.; and Publix, 2515 Thonotosassa Road.
