Eagle Ford: Hobson Post Office closes
The Hobson Post Office, located at 6692 N. U.S. 181, closed for business Oct. 18. The U.S. Postal Service was unable to hire a qualified person to operate the facility, leaving no alternative but to declare an emergency suspension of the office.
The approximately 100 P.O. box customers served by the Hobson Post Office will keep their same addresses. Their P.O. box numbers and Hobson, TX 78117 addresses will remain the same. Hobson’s P.O. boxes were moved and installed at the nearby Falls City Post Office, 200 N. Irvin St.
Hobson P.O. box customers were able to begin picking up mail from their boxes Oct. 21.
Falls City Post Office hours of retail operation are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m., and Saturdays 9-11 a.m. The outer P.O. box lobby is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays.
Other area post office closures include the Geronimo main office and a location at Brooks Air Force Base in San Antonio.
