San Marino post office celebrates ZIP code coinciding with 9/11/18 date

SAN MARINO, Calif. (KABC) -- The San Marino post office marked a rare occasion as the date coincided with the ZIP code.

Tuesday's date - 9/11/18 - is the same as the code 91118. The post office greeted customers with free snacks and bottled water to celebrate.
