My local MBE operator stated that unless something changes, the USPS will begin enforcing the rule as of August 26th. She did not give me the # as an option, but did say that different owners will approach it in various ways. Her preference was to be upfront and honest with her customers with respect to the potential issues one may encounter as of the end of August. Not being an expert in the area myself, I didn’t ask about the significance of the August 26th date. If I use her location, it doesn’t seem like another option exists at this point. Personally, I don’t see a big deal with using “PMB” in my address anyways - the average person is not going to even know the meaning of the abbreviation.
I just don’t want any surprises (a.k.a. missing mail) at some point in the near future.
thanks again for the info,
