UNA â€” Residents in Una no longer have to make the half hour drive to West Point or Aberdeen for their postal service needs.
Mississippiâ€™s first Village Post Office (VPO), located inside Knox Grocery in Una, opened for business last Thursday.
A VPO is affiliated with USPS, but is operated out of a private business so USPS doesnâ€™t have to pay for a building or workers. The VPO consists a shelf inside the business that offers flat-rate boxes and stamps, as well as a drop off point for customers to mail their packages.

Holidays are always busy times for local and state law enforcement officials, and this year's Memorial Day weekend was no different.
