The U.S. Postal Service announces that they plan to stop Saturday delivery, except for packages, by the summer.

 

Pete Pierce, owner of Postal Connections in the Forum Shopping Center says he's not too sure that will become a reality.  "I have my doubts that they will be able to stop Saturday delivery. If you'll look carefully into it, Congress has mandated that they have Saturday delivery to the post office and unless Congress gives them the ok, they're actually going against what they can do. So their announcement is all great and fine, but if you'll remember last time when the post office tried to close small post offices throughout the country, up to about 3,000-4,000, every Congressman who had one of those in their district complained and they shut that down."

 

Pierce says he understands that there will still be Saturday delivery to places like his business; so if it does become a reality, it won't affect him.
