BLENCOE, Iowa (AP) - The Blencoe Post Office is back in business at a new location across a street.

It reopened Wednesday after being closed in April 2014 because of problems with the old building’s foundation.

The Monona County town of around 220 people lost local delivery for 20 months. Residents could pick up their mail at temporary boxes in Blencoe or travel 16 miles to the Moorhead Post Office to get their mail, buy stamps, send packages or avail themselves of other postal services.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1n7KQso ) that rural delivery continued as usual.
