The end of Saturday mail?
February 6, 2013 in Journal
According to ABC news, the US Postal service is going to discontinue Saturday delivery for mail, although continue it for packages and P.O. boxes. The official announcement is scheduled for later today and I’ll post a copy of the press release when it is available.
The move accentuates one of the agency’s strong points — package delivery has increased by 14 percent since 2010, officials say, while the delivery of letters and other mail has declined with the increasing use of email and other Internet use.
One question that’s up in the air is how the USPS can cut Saturday mail delivery without Congressional approval. Still, I suspect that we’re seeing the end of Saturday delivery in the US. Make sure you enjoy it while it lasts.
