Sublette County post offices not on closure study list
by Pinedale Online!
July 31, 2011

The U.S. Postal Service released a list recently of nearly 3,700 post offices it is considering closing across the country. Fortunately for Sublette County, none of our rural post offices are on the cut study list.

The U.S. Postal Service says that, because of changes in consumer behavior, such as more customers conducting business online or in their shopping destinations, the need to maintain nearly 32,000 retail destinations has diminished.

The U.S. Postal Service calls their plans to eliminate unprofitable retail locations as "right-sizing its expansive retail network" by introducing a retail-replacement option. The Postal Serviceís new business plan is to create "Village Post Offices".

"Village Post Offices would be operated by local businesses, such as pharmacies, grocery stores and other appropriate retailers, and would offer popular postal products and services such as stamps and flat-rate packaging," the Postal Service media release states.

"Today, more than 35 percent of the Postal Serviceís retail revenue comes from expanded access locations such as grocery stores, drug stores, office supply stores, retail chains, self-service kiosks, ATMs and usps.com, open 24/7," said Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe. "Our customerís habits have made it clear that they no longer require a physical post office to conduct most of their postal business."

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses, and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

"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," Donahoe added.
