Postal Service Pulling Plug On Saturday First Class Deliveries
The United States Postal Service has good news for Americans who don’t like to receive bills in the mail on Saturday.
Starting this summer, that will be a thing of the past. As will delivery of all first class mail on Saturday.
Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe’s plan would mean the final regular Saturday first class mail deliveries would be made August 3. Mail would still be sorted for Saturday pickup at post office boxes.
The end to Saturday first class delivery service could save the postal service $2 billion a year.
Congress could act to prevent the move to prevent the plan from taking effect. Donahoe says he’ll be meeting with lawmakers to encourage them to support the action.
