In a West Plains warehouse, Danny Megow attaches labels to Priority Mail packages headed to Davenport, Clarkston and Orofino.
He’s part of the work crew at Mailstream USA, a contract company that’s preparing one of the largest package mailings in Inland Northwest history – the delivery of 300,000 kits containing compact fluorescent light bulbs to Avista Utilities customers.
Each weekday, about 5,400 packages leave the warehouse in a U.S. Postal Service truck. The kits of eight bulbs arrive on doorsteps within a day or two.
