Jim Looney, Telluride’s popular and oh-so-loved postman, retired after 20 years of service on October 27, 2018. With his welcoming smile and knack for remembering everyone he meets, “Postman Jim” is the type of person who makes you look forward to going to the post office.
For those who don’t know, Telluride does not have typical mail service. Residents have to visit to the post office to fetch mail from their PO boxes and retrieve packages from the staff. With that said, the post office sees about 300+ visitors a day.
