A USPS Closure in Your Area?

On July 27, 2011, The USPS filed for an opinion on closing some 3,652 post offices, stations and branches nationwide (about 11 percent of its retail network).

Texas and Illinois top the list of possible USPS closures, and Delaware is the only state with no facilities on the list.

The USPS must consider these closures because of society's changes in communications (i.e., email and bill paying via the internet), the questionable need for traditional brick-and-mortar stores, and the USPS' current economic condition.

Of course, postal union members aren't very happy about this, in addition to customers in small towns who consider the local post office a meeting place.

Wonder if your post office is on the list? You can look at a map here.
