The U.S. Postal Service has announced a new strategy today that could keep the nation’s smallest post offices open for business, while providing a framework to achieve significant cost savings as part of the plan to return the organization to financial stability.
The postal service said that the plan would keep the existing post offices in place, but with modified retail window hours to match customer use. Access to the retail lobby and to PO boxes would remain unchanged, and the town’s ZIP Code and community identity would be retained.
Post offices serving LaGrange County affected by the changes are: Hudson PO – down to six hours; Mongo PO – down to four hours; Orland PO – down to six hours; Rome City PO – down to four hours; South Milford PO – down to four hours; and Stroh PO – down to four hours.
