Postal Service relents: Granite Quarry residents can use town name in mailing addresses

GRANITE QUARRY — With a push from the office of U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., the U.S. Postal Service has made a change and says Granite Quarry residents and businesses can now use “Granite Quarry” as part of their mailing addresses.

Maged S. Aziz, district manager for the Mid-Carolinas District of the U.S. Postal Service, informed the town of the change late last week.

Until now, most Granite Quarry street delivery addresses had to use “Salisbury, NC 28146” because mail delivered to Granite Quarry homes and businesses comes from the Salisbury post office.

Town officials had asked that residents be allowed to use “Granite Quarry, NC 28146” to help eliminate years of confusion in many deliveries. Personnel in Hudson’s district office in Concord started working toward a possible change after reading of Granite Quarry’s frustration in an Oct. 6 story in the Salisbury Post.

In his most recent letter to the town, Aziz stated, “We have modified our database to include the following address for customers receiving street delivery from the Salisbury post office as you requested:

Customer name
Customer street address
Salisbury, NC 28146

Or

Customer name
Customer Street address
Granite Quarry, NC 28146.

The Post will have more on this change for Granite Quarry in Tuesday’s edition.
