Post Office Turns To Small-Town Mini-Mart For Savings

Something has to be done, and this sounds like a reasonable idea. Maybe the cost of stamps will go down as a result. You’re not buying that are ya? Me neither.

The Postal Service, a government-supervised private operation running billions of dollars in the red, wants to cut costs by closing as many as 3,700 small post offices and replacing some of them with what it calls “village post offices.”

The idea, being tried in Malone, Wash., is to offer the most basic mail services at lower cost by installing minimal post offices inside such places as grocery stores and drugstores.
