Answer: 
No. There's a raised plastic bump out on each side of the door to hold the door closed. In my opinion you could easily attach a magnetic closer if the plastic bump outs fail over time.

No magnet. It has plastic tabs on the sides of the mailbox that hold the door closed. I was pleasantly surprised by how they held the door closed. Not too whimpy and not too hard to open.

This mailbox is designed to slip over a 4x4 PTL post that is securely seated in the ground. the post must stick up from your ground's surface by 48".
I simply used my existing Mailbox post after sawing off it's horizontal arm & support brackets.
If you are installing a new post, after you dig your hole, put some gravel in the bottom first.
Then fill in the hole with dirt 2/3's of the way up. Now put in your slug of RediMix. Now finish filling hole.
NOTE: I have found the when you put your concrete in the hole, higher up the post it prevents the wobble that develops when the bottom of the post is 'set' in a concrete anchor. With the 'high' pour you defeat the pendulum effect that occurs with age, and it saves you from having to go back and DO IT AGAIN!
Just make sure to use a level to achieve a true vertical on you post installation. Nuthin' looks like it wuz installed by an idjiot more than a limp-standin' post or pole.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 143 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Prettiest mailbox in the neighborhood Easy to install, just follow directions...note: use a 5-6 ft post and cement in ground for best stability. Before I even put the finishing touches on this project, the mailman, and my neighbors commented that I had the prettiest mailbox in the neighborhood!. It's sturdy, has plenty of room for large items. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly satisfied, would purchase this product again ... What a great product. Easy to assemble, sturdy, well made and WOW ! ! what a great looking mailbox. I would highly recommend this fine American made product, (no. I don't work for this company) June 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT ITEM FOR PRICE - LOOKS GREAT! We are very pleased with this mailbox - not too expensive so the next time someone runs it down as they do from time to time in our rural area....we aren't in the hole too badly! We didn't' receive the hardware package however we were able to find some we had around the house that worked. Other than that it was quite simple to install. I would give a higher rating except that we were missing that hardware kit - seems to be a trend these days - something is always missing..... July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome mailbox This mailbox was so easy to assemble and looks fantastic. My mail carrier commented on how they wished everyone would change to this style. Gathered my mail during the rain and the mail was dry. It box itself is large enough to hold a few days worth of mail with no problems. July 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mailbox looks great, easy to install. Recommended numbers don't fit properly Mailbox easy to install, however recommended number display does not fit properly, had to adapt March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Mailbox I did not install this mailbox so I cannot rate that part but I can say that it is a really pretty mailbox and my clients loved it! It looks like I paid much more for it than I did. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a nice mailbox for the price While the mailbox itself goes together like a Chinese puzzle, the unit looks great for a polymer product. No more "Quonset hut" tin mail box, and for a low price you can really improve the curb appeal of your property. July 12, 2016
