U.S. Postal Service Ending Saturday Mail Delivery

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The U.S. Postal Service made a big announcement on Wednesday. They have decided to cut Saturday mail delivery to save money. The decision will take effect later this year.

Packages will still be delivered six days a week, but letters and other first-class mail will only go out on weekdays.

"As far as stopping delivery mail on Saturdays, I don't think that's right," said Alfred Hernandez, who is against the plan.

"I think that's a good measure to save the post office. I do," Millie Mulinix said. "If I get mail Monday through Friday, that's fine with me."

"You just have to wait an extra day, but I don't think it would be that much of a problem," Jason Simank said.

"I like the convenience of mail on Saturday, but I understand the cost," Dub Cole said.

The Post Master General says this move will not result in layoffs. The change is set to take effect in August.
