Village Post Offices are located in non-Postal Service establishments, such as an existing community business, town hall or government center, and offer a limited range of postal services, according to Val Porter, Preston postmaster.

He said the VPO in Papa Jay’s would offer postal customers in the community greater access to Forever Stamp booklets, free Priority Mail flat-rate supplies and prepaid Priority Mail Flat Rate products.

The VPO in Papa Jay’s will not take the place of the regular post office in Clifton, said Porter.

Local and Post Office officials cut a ribbon last week for the new Village Post Office in Clifton. Standing l-r are; county commissioner Dirk Bowles; William L. Scouten, manager, Idaho East Post Office operations; Preston postmaster Val Porter; Clifton mayor John Gailey; Richard and Mary Penrod, Papa Jay’s owners; Robert H. Vunder, marketing manager Salt Lake Region, and Linda Pickett, retail manager Salt Lake.
