Postal Service Plans to Cut More Post Offices

In an interview with Kelly Holmes of My Print Resource, Deputy Postmaster Ron Stroman indicated the Postal Service's retail optimization initiative before the Postal Regulatory Commission was just the first phase of a muti-phase plan.   In the interview he indicated that the the next phase will look at another 4,000 Post Offices, stations and branches.

Given the current review process that includes both the current Postal Regulatory Commission review of the Postal Service's proposal as well as review of possible appeals, The next phase of the retail optimization will likely occur sometime in mid to late 2012.  

Upon completion of these two phases, as well as retail closure efforts already progressing, the Postal Service will be examining nearly 9,000 Post Offices or as much as one-quarter of all retail facilities.
