USPSPostal Service to cut Saturday delivery 

 

As report in the Huffungton Post, If an effort to cut back on their loses, the Postal service will cut Saturday deliver for mail but will continue to disburse packages 6 days a week. 

Mail would be delivered Monday thru Friday but would still be delivered to post office boxes on Saturdays.  Post offices that are currently open on Saturdays would remain open on Saturdays.  

Package delivery has increased by 14 percent since 2010 while the delivery of letters and other mail has continued to decline with the increase use of email and other internet services.

It is expected that the mail cutback would begin in August and could save $2 Billion dollars annually.

 

What are your thought on loosing Saturday mail service?

Debora, my thoughts are I don't depend on snail mail as much as I did 10 years ago. So cutting out Saturday mail delivery is not a big deal for me, although it's sad to see the Post Office decline as it has been.

I believe the post office can and should be replaced by online services. For packages, I would continue using their competitors...FedEx and UPS.
