Redmond’s Mailbox and Shipping Center moves, but just across the street

Mailbox and Shipping Center owner Al Hudda has moved to a new location

Patrons of Mailbox and Shipping Center, formerly located in the Redmond Shopping Square, don’t have to look far to find its new home.

Owner Al Hudda has moved the business just across the street, to 8040 161st Ave. NE, next to Tropea Restaurant.

Hudda said the core service at Mailbox and Shipping Center is renting mailboxes with 24 hour access. Customers get a key to their mailbox and to the door for that portion of that shop. If they receive a package that doesn’t fit in their box, Hudda puts a note in their box and they can pick it up during regular business hours.

The advantage, said Hudda, is that “we provide a street address” for home-based business owners “and can take packages from any carrier, not just the United States Postal Service. They can get all their packages here.” It’s more secure than having packages left on your doorstep, Hudda pointed out.

Mailbox and Shipping Center also does shipping, mailing, packaging and carries packaging supplies.

“We are an authorized shipping center for UPS, FedEx, and DHL and can provide all the choices,” Hudda explained.

Customers can view a screen that displays delivery dates and prices for each of those carriers — and they can choose the shipping option that best suits their deadline and their budget.

“And they get free tracking and (insurance) coverage up to $100,” Hudda added.

Mailbox and Shipping Center also offers notary service, passport photos, copies and faxes.

The shop is open Monday-Friday from 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. For more information about Mailbox and Shipping Center, call (425) 869-1448.

Just two other businesses remain open at the Redmond Shopping Square, but not for long, since the City of Redmond will soon begin a project to extend 161st Avenue Northeast from Bear Creek Parkway to Redmond Way.

Kanishka Cuisine of India will close on March 29 and will reopen in late April or May at the current site of Beck’s Steakhouse, 16651 Redmond Way. For more information about Kanishka, call (425) 869-9182.

Fatima’s Custom Tailoring and Contract Sewing is closing by March 27 and will relocate to Rose Hill Cleaners at 12663 NE 85th St. in Kirkland. Fatima’s phone number, (425) 869-1458, will remain the same.
