Post office to stop Saturday delivery, business owners concerned
CUNNINGHAM, Ky. - Soon we'll all find out what we'll have to do to make sure our payments and important letters get to where they're going on time, when Saturday mail ceases in August.
The postal service is taking drastic measures to save money.
The postal service is tens of billions of dollars in debt. This move will likely save a few billion dollars, but local business owners worry about how much the move will cost all of us.
Mail means money. A lot of folks likely waited until the last minute to send a check in the mail trusting these trucks will run Monday through Saturday and thier check will get there on time.
Under the plan the USPS. will keep package delivery on Saturdays. Local 6 asked about medicine delivery because many people get prescriptions in the mail. A spokesperson said the postal service will work with pharmaceutical companies to make sure meds get to patients even on Saturdays.
A postal service spokesperson also tells Local 6 mail addressed to P.O. Boxes will continue to be delivered on Saturday. Those folks who have a P.O. Box, will continue to get Saturday mail.
