Growth in Berkeley County Leads to New Summerville Zip Code

Berkeley County has witnessed tremendous growth in recent years and is expected to experience even more with the recent announcement that Volvo will be building their first North American production facility near Ridgeville.  The Summerville Journal Scene recently reported that as of July 1, some Summerville residents in Berkeley County will get a brand new zip code. This new division affects about 10,000 mail recipients who, as of July, will be in zip code 29486 (rather than the former 29483). This new zip code encompasses quite a few popular new home communities: Cane Bay Plantation, Carnes Crossroads and Nexton.  Residents will have a one-year grace period where mail addressed with either zip code will be delivered in the hopes of minimizing customer inconvenience. Items requiring a signature will still be available for pick up the Summerville Main Post Office at 301 N. Gum Street.  Summerville Post Master, William S. Davie is quoted as saying:  “These changes are necessary so we can continue to provide excellent mail service.  ZIP Codes were created to help us provide efficient mail delivery. With these changes, we will be able to continue providing the level of service our customers expect for years to come.”
