Your Local Post Office Will Not Be Closing

Rural parts of South Jersey will keep some key landmarks!

Back in November, Richard Degener did a story for the Press of Atlantic City about the Cape May Point Post Office – one of about 3,700 “low revenue” post offices that were reported to be closed as part of the government’s proposed overhaul of the Postal Service.

MSNBC reports today that offices like Cape May Point and other rural South Jersey post offices will not be closed as planned.  Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said that “strong community opposition” has led the government agency to reassess its plan.  No post office would be closed, but more than 13,000 mail facilities could see reduced operations.

The new strategy would then be implemented over two years and completed in September 2014.  It would save an estimated half billion dollars annually.  The agency had to make changes with the decrease in mail being sent and the increased use of the Internet.   The 2012 estimates for the Postal Service is a projected $14.1 billion loss, and without changes, it said, annual losses will exceed $21 billion by 2016.

Changes were inevitable for the Postal Service, but for places like Cape May Point Post Office there will be some changes, but they still will be there for the community.
