POSTAL SERVICE TO CUT SATURDAY MAIL TO TRIM COSTS

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service will stop delivering mail on Saturdays but continue to deliver packages six days a week under a plan aimed at saving about $2 billion, the financially struggling agency says.

In an announcement scheduled for later Wednesday, the service is expected to say the Saturday mail cutback would begin in August.

Lol Spoken like a Canadian.

As an American living in Canada, I have had to adjust to stores actually closing on holidays and daily shortened shopping hours.

I'm not surprised by this news at all.

I do however think it is insane the USPS has sponsored athletes while at the same time they continue to raise the cost of postage.

They gave Lance Armstrong at least $30 million.

Here is an article from 2003 about it too: [link to chiefmarketer.com]

Seems when you are that broke as an organization you really shouldn't do all these extras.

If anyone still pays bills via check this will give your creditors even more of a chance to hit you with late fees.

I didn't like it anyway. If you're gone for the weekend, I don't like leaving the mail sitting in the box.

The real reason for skipping Saturday is because our new owners take off Saturdays.
