A shipping center recently opened its doors in Long Island City, offering an array of services ranging from mail-box rentals to packaging supplies.
City Mailroom, operating out of a 1,000 square-foot store at 44-70 21st St., opened on Sept. 14, and marks the fifth shipping center for Kishore Hemrajani, who owns other stores under the same name on Long Island.
Hemrajani opted to open a branch in Long Island City because of the development boom.
“I saw that Long Island City is the fastest growing neighborhood in the country, and with so many co-working spaces like WeWork coming into the area it made sense to open here,” Hemrajani said. “There are going to be many people and business owners that will need a place to get presentations printed or overnight deliveries made.”
City Mailroom will be managed day-to-day by Christian Lee, who has worked in the industry for about 15 years.
Services offered at City Mailroom include FedEx, USPS and DHL overnight shipping, with full packing services on site for fragile items or freight/furniture.
The center also operates under LIC Blueprint, which specializes in reprographics, or the scanning and copying of architectural plans, engineering, or construction blueprints.
Typical office services like binding, laminating, shredding, notarizing, graphic design, bulk postcard or business card printing with delivery and private mailbox rentals are also available.
The center also takes passport photos and provides digital fingerprinting services. Visitors can also pay to use City Mailroom’s on-site computer to browse the internet or print documents.
The store also accepts printing orders via e-mail, which can be later picked up on site.
City Mailroom is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.citymailroom.com
