Maureen Marion is regional spokesperson for the Postal Service. She says it’s been taking a hard look at how to tighten its belt “by several notches”:

The way people use mail has changed dramatically…and we don’t foresee volumes of days past will ever be to that level again. So we needed to see how we can consolidate….to meet the demands of today’s audience.

Marion says the USPS has spent the last few days notifying employees about the closure, and that about 55 positions will be affected. And she says this consolidation would save the postal service more than 3 million dollars a year.  

In a press release, the postal service said the decision is the result of studies it started five months ago, and didn’t give a specific date for the planned closure.
