New bi-lingual post office opens in Memphis

It's the fastest growing demographic in Memphis....and businesses are looking for ways to better serve the latino community.

Now the post office has opened a bi-lingual satellite center inside the Nationwide Insurance agency on Hickory Hill.

The language barrier coupled with the exploding population drove the need for the center.

"It's the understanding of the mailing system. Different countries are very different when it comes to mailing with different issue. To come over here they have the streets and the addresses, and most of them don't have that over there," says manager Lauda Davis.

This is the first time the post service has opened a satellite center inside an office building that sells insurance.

But this new type of satellite center could be a model for the country.
