Post office closure list keeps shrinking

The USPS is still looking at closing post offices, but there’s a good chance yours is no longer on the list.

Back in August I wrote that nearly 700 post offices across the U.S. could be shut down to save money. Officials later shortened that list to just 241, and this week they announced less than 170 branches are still potentially on the chopping block.

California and Ohio could each lose as many as 25 post offices, according to the latest list [PDF]. Smaller numbers of offices remain under review in other states.

There’s still no word when a final decision will be made on which post offices will close their doors.
