Post offices may be closed
In an effort to bridge a budget gap, the U.S. Postal Service is reviewing more than 3,600 national postal branches for possible closure.
The Postal Service's budget woes come from the loss of customer traffic through increased use of email and online bill paying.
The reduction will only affect the Postal Service's retail services, such as buying stamps and mailing packages.
I don't know about you, but I already have to wait too long (most of the time) to mail packages. Our post office doesn't have one of the machines that allow you to weigh and pay without waiting. I wish it did.
