The Postman reopens at MLK and Union

KeAnna Pickett reopened Central District mailing services shop The Postman Wednesday just over a month after her husband was gunned down outside the MLK at Union business.

“We made it!!,” the Postman’s announcement reads. “We are finally back open.”

D’Vonne Pickett, Jr. was gunned down October 19th outside the mailing services shop he opened KeAnna in 2018. The father, business owner, and youth football coach was 31. D’Vonne Pickett told CHS in 2018 his grandfather served as a mail carrier for the USPS in Seattle for nearly 40 years and was an inspiration for the store.

CHS reported here on the public memorial held earlier this month at Climate Pledge Arena for Pickett.

The man charged in Pickett’s murder amid a “psychotic” string of shootings leading up to the MLK and Union killing has pleaded not guilty in the slaying. CHS also reported on a mistake made in the emergency dispatch process that cost valuable minutes in the efforts to save Pickett’s life.

The Postman reports some of its services are currently limited as it rebuilds after the tragedy but it is offering USPS and UPS shipping. The store also features gift shopping opportunities.

The Postman is located at 1143 Martin Luther King Jr Way. You can learn more at thepostmanseattle.com.
