In a statement, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said customers are not using their local USPS offices the way that used to.
“Our customer’s habits have made it clear that they no longer require a physical post office to conduct most of their postal business,” said Donahoe. “The Postal Service of the future will be smaller, leaner and more competitive and it will continue to drive commerce, serve communities and deliver value.”
In the statement, Donahoe said some communities that lose retail locations might get what USPS calls a Village Post Office, which are basically smaller automated stations or a local vendor that sells stamps and flat-rate boxes.
