Question of the Day: USPS Problems?

Share your opinion in the comments.

It’s hard to imagine Lexington not having a post office, but with the US Postal Service expected to shutter thousands of offices, some folks may soon be facing that reality.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, the USPS is struggling financially and “will consider closing 3,653 post offices, mostly in rural areas.”

With more and more people using computers to communicate and pay bills, the postal fees that support the agency are declining sharply, the WSJ reports. As such, half of the postal service’s 32,000 could come under review for closure in the next decade, sources said.

So, with that in mind, we want to know, How often to you use your local post office? How many times have you been in the past year?

For several reasons a post office remains an important symbol in a town. I don't do much by snail mail anymore, but I still go there at least twice a month and when I need to go there it is really handy to have it nearby. The local post office has been very helpful a couple of times when a bulk mailing was not submitted in time, but the local office made it happen anyway.
