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.

    US Postal Services is a semi private corporation and not a government agencies as is implied by the name…In the internet age with most people buying and shipping their product online, it has made going into most post offices very irrelevant…The post offices have taken over some of the functions of the State Dept such as their passport functions and has jacked up the fees from the customary $40 that was paid to over $125 for a passport…The same thing will happen to law enforcement agencies who have embraced all these new technologies such as red light cameras, will find themselves out of work…I’m glad to hear the City of LA will be shutting down their red lights camera because it’s too expensive and difficult to enforce the ticketing from these cameras…

    Thanks for every other fantastic article. Where else may anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect means of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am at the look for such information.
