The Renfro Valley, KY, Village Post Office (VPO) set a record when it opened last month, just days after negotiations for the new location got underway.
It began when Kentuckiana District Village Post Office Coordinator Nick Walker learned the Renfro Valley Post Office was closing, which would have left the historic town with no postal presence.
Walker decided to step in and help — but time was running out.
In just seven days, he negotiated an agreement with the Renfro Valley Entertainment Center, a well-known concert venue, to house a VPO. Walker made arrangements for the center to receive VPO supplies and signage, and a grand opening ceremony soon followed.
Besides being the fastest opening for a VPO yet, Renfro Valley was the 60th location opened in May and the 150th VPO in Eastern Area, which has more VPOs than any other area.
