Phoenix Main Post Office

Map and Directions to Phoenix Phoenix Main Post Office

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has many post offices in the Phoenix area, but the main USPS postal facility is in Phoenix at 50th Street and Van Buren. 

Many people have the impression that the main post office in Phoenix is located on Central Avenue in Downtown Phoenix. While the Federal Building at 522 N. Central Post Office is a large building of historical significance, it is not technically the main post office. The facility on Van Buren handles many more services than other lost offices, including bulk mail and passport photos. It is also the only Phoenix post office that is regularly open after 6 p.m. and on Saturdays. Are you mailing your tax return on the last day? This post office is probably your destination!

Phoenix Main Post Office Address:
4949 E. Van Buren, Room 187
Phoenix, AZ 85026

The window is on Van Buren Street, just east of 48th Street.
