Finance Station "M"

This little known branch of the US Post Office at 7617-15 N Paulina has limited hours. Its open Monday through Friday 11:00 am - 5:00 pm. Do keep in mind that as this is a federally run service this location will be closed Memorial Day Monday May 26th, Independence Day Friday July 4th, and Labor Day Monday September 1st.

Possession of firearms was banned by the Post Office before it became trendy. When the noticed were posted years ago revolvers were contraband. Original wall mounted radiators still line the north wall. (Another rare example of wall mounted radiators in Rogers Park is the Lang House.They do pop up on E-bay sometimes. Here you can see a new version that doubles as a towel rack.)

And take note that pets are only allowed to aide the hearing or visually impaired. Money Orders are available but like everywhere else in the vicinity no loitering is allowed. The orange crates and stacked plastic mail buckets in front make it look like an abandoned, unused post office.
