Metro Area USPS Closings

ATLANTA (WAOK)– When is the last time you mailed a letter? Some local U.S. Postal Service retail outlets across the state are struggling to keep their doors open to the public because people just don’t send messages to others like they used to.

The United States Postal Service lost $8 billion last year, now at least a half-dozen USPS retail outlets in metro Atlanta will be closing.   A total of 45 outlets in Georgia are being considered for closure, many located in small towns like Cisco, Ideal, Jewell, Mystic and Tennga.

Metro Atlanta closings include: Cascade Heights, Lakewood, Northlake, Peachtree Center, Phoenix Station and West End.

The USPS operates 31, 871 retail outlets across the country, 3,653 offices, branches and stations are under review by the agency.
