The Transformation of Mail Station on Washington Street

| March 3, 2020 | 0 Comments

Since 2008, Chris Sykes has been the owner and operator of Mail Station, located at 325 W. Washington Street, Suite 2 in Mission Hills. This past January, Lancelet Knight (that is his correct name), assumed ownership and management of the business.

Knight, who has had management experience in the postal service business, also had an extensive background in the culinary industry.  Though culinary was one of his life passions, due to physical reasons, he chose to “reinvent himself” and develop a new career path.

Knight, who is from the East Coast, came to San Diego with his wife and family.  He has seven daughters, ranging from 27 to 14-years old, and one granddaughter. 

When asked what to expect from him becoming the new owner, Knight offered that Mail Station will continue to provide mailboxes, shipping (FedEx and DHL), print and copy and scan and fax services.

Additionally, passport photos will be offered, as well as notary services, graphic support and print services.  Knight said that he has contracted with several graphic designers to services customers and their unique requests and requirements for creating brochures, flyers, business cards, signage, and other marketing and promotional materials.  He will also provide loan sign document certification, and tax preparation services. 

As you can see, Knight has a lot planned for Mail Station and intends to be very “community focused” when it comes to operating his business.  He is also creating a brand image for the store that includes “trust, security and expertise” and the goal to exceed customer expectations.

In keeping with the technological times, Knight will also utilize Facebook, Instagram and other social media services to reach the community and be a viable business in Mission Hills and the surrounding communities.  To learn more about Mail Station on Washington Street, call (619) 296-9111 or visit

Lance Knight is eager to be an integral part of the community and looks forward to providing an array of business services.
