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.

I have not heard of it. You can use e-mail instead of snail mails. If you're going to send in stuff, that's when trouble kicks in.

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.

Here as well I am so glad the one on my corner is not one of them. During Christmas time I use the post office a lot.

Yes in our area as well. They will combine three offices into one and we will need to drive almost 12 miles to get to the closest. It is sad and I would think the gas prices alone would even it out but apparently not.
