Postal Service seeks to close rural offices

Aug. 11, 2011 | 0 comments

Postmaster General Patrick Donahue announced the results of the recent "post office study". The closings would affect offices in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. The postal service says the study recommended closing the offices, based on low foot traffic and small workload.

Donahue says the closings are needed to stem the tide of losses incurred by USPS. Last year, the postal service posted a net loss of $8.5 billion. Last quarter alone, USPS lost $2.2 billion.

The postal service said some of the offices may be replaced with service counters in other local businesses. USPS is expected to announce, which communities could see these so-called "village post offices" by this fall. Donahue says this business model could allow USPS to avoid service gaps and help small businesses at the same time.

The postal service says once the locations close, mail delivery would be handled by other nearby offices and local zip codes would be preserved.
