Good News from USPS® – Facility Closures Delayed

Mailers can breathe a bit easier for the first half of 2012 – USPS announced yesterday that they will not be closing any facilities or post offices until May 15. Over 200 sorting facilities and 3,000 post offices were on the chopping block. Now USPS has the time to fully investigate and plan for these closures. The information about sorting facility consolidation was especially lacking, and didn’t include information for mailers who deposit mail and receive discounts at those locations. Expect these closures to resume starting this summer, but hopefully this will allow for enough education, both in and outside the post office, to help them go smoothly.
