With a multibillion dollar deficit, it appears there was little the U.S. Postal Service could do to thwart its plan to discontinue Saturday mail delivery.
The Postal Service announced last week that beginning in August, mail would be delivered to homes and businesses only Monday through Friday, but would still be delivered to post office boxes on Saturdays. Post offices would remain open on Saturdays.
The cutback is expected to save the agency $2 billion annually.
