Fewer Post Offices?

Jun 22, 2009

The Detroit Free Press reported that the USPS Detroit District is creating a list of post offices to be considered for consolidation and elimination. The list is supposed to be made public in mid-July.

They cite lower mail volume created by the economic downturn: fewer credit card offers and other advertising are going out.

Really? So because corporations are sending out fewer mailers, the solution is to take customer service away from ordinary people? And that will help increase mail volume how, exactly?
