Almost five years ago, the U.S. Postal Service began looking for someone to open a contract post office in the Indian Land area.
Last month, someone finally took them up on the offer.
Janice and Paul Slagle, who own the Panhandle Food Store and Valero (formerly Citgo) gas station, opened a contract postal unit in their store on Feb. 10.
The store is located at one of Indian Land’s busiest intersections – U.S. 521 and S.C. 160.
