Glen Burnie post office move long overdue for some patrons


August 18, 1999|By Donna Koros Stramella | Donna Koros Stramella,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE GLEN BURNIE post office can't relocate soon enough for me.

On two trips last week, every parking spot was filled, and visitors sat in their cars waiting for an open space -- much like last-minute Christmas shoppers at the mall.

When the post office moves just up Ritchie Highway to the old Harundale Mall, parking has to improve, and I hope more space will be inside.
