GORDON, WI -- The post office in Gordon, Wisconsin won’t be closing after all.

Two weeks ago, the United State Post Office originally announced the Gordon location would be shutting down by November 9.

They blamed the closure on the loss of their current building lease.

But the USPS announced Monday they were able to renew the lease and plan to stay open.

When the planned closure was first announced, dozens of community members came together hoping to save it.

They held a rally outside the Gordon location and even started a petition, which got hundreds of signatures.

“There’s a lot that can be said for having good communication and we have that,” said rally organizer Pam Boettcher. “It’s people coming together, determining the problem and coming up with a solution, and I am just so proud of the community and everyone supporting the issue.”

Rep. Tom Tiffany, who represents Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District, also sent a letter to the USPS encouraging them to find a way to stay open.
