     History
    The original Post Office was built in 1884 as was located on Dunlop Street at the present day Memorial Square. During the demolition of this beautiful structure in the early 1970's (?), a time capsule was discovered. The documents discovered was reprinted by by the Simcoe County Historical Association in 1979 and is titled "Historical Sketch of the Town of Barrie".
    The Post Office moved to its new location sometime in the mid-1970's at 44 Collier Street. The Post Office moved again sometime in 2004 to its present location at the old 'Hasty-Mart' on 150 Collier Street.

     Future Plans
    The Scotiabank announced on November 17, 2005 that it will redevelop the old post office site, at Collier and Owen streets. The new 22,000-square-foot, two-storey centre will offer a complete range of banking and financial services, as the bank consolidates Dunlop and Allandale branches and its commercial and investment services. Rezoning is currently underway to allow re-development to 'C1 / C2'.
