Redmond Ridge UPS Store under new ownership

The UPS Store®, located at 23515 NE Novelty Hill Rd. in the Redmond Ridge area” is under new ownership with Jack Graham now leading the way.

“As a one-stop shop for shipping, postal, document and business services, we look forward to serving the Redmond Ridge and Union Hill area,” said Graham. He is looking forward to getting involved in the community and developing strong relationships with his customers.

The UPS Store offers domestic and international shipping, full-service packing, digital printing, black-and-white and color duplications, document finishing (binding, laminating, etc.), notary and printing services (business cards, brochures, training manuals, etc.), custom crating and shipping for large items (e.g., grandfather clocks, motorcycles), mailbox and postal services, office and packaging supplies and more.

According to Graham, “We are in the business of saving people time, and with shipping prices direct from UPS, we can save them money as well. At The UPS Store, we’re committed to providing convenient business solutions with world class customer service.”
