THE MAIL HUB

THE MAIL HUB
Born in the hearts and minds of two women, who studied the feasibility of this idea, and gave birth to The Mail Hub, LLC. Owned and operated by Ms. Karen Bowry, the core of the business is mailbox rental, mail services and money services.

After one year of location hunting and many failed attempts to acquire a lease, in April 2008, a 600 sq. ft. space was located at The Galleria in Red Hook, St. Thomas, VI. Just like every other business, the journey to build out and open was plagued with setbacks, but their doors opened on July, 22, 2008.

Mail Hub, LLC is an authorized shipping agent of FEDEX, UPS, USPS and DHL. The business also offers the service of forwarding and receiving packages and Western Union Money transfer services. Ms. Bowry came to the VI SBDC in search of needed assistance to turn her dreams into reality. She had so many ideas and so many down falls that she really needed someone to hold her hand. As a result of our assistance, she completed her business plan and was able to obtain financing from the Government Development Bank and Borrego Springs Bank.
