Oh my I have not heard this until you posted so I will have to check with my Local one which is only two blocks away and it is small so I will have to find out as our next one is not very nearby. I think that will be sort of a disaster, as many things get goofed up as it is so wow it will burden the next one with heavier loads. Thanks for sharing and I will check mine out.

Where I live, our post office was closed down years ago and the building is used for administrative services and such for the post office instead. We have "postal counters" now that are in local businesses such as pharmacies. The positive aspect of the change is that these businesses generally stay open later than the post office did so we have expanded access to postal services, just in a small space.
