Is the Post Office Open on Saturday and Sunday?

Is the post office open on Saturday and Sunday
There seems to be quite a bit of confusion on whether or not the United States Postal Service (USPS) post offices are open on Saturday. The post office did announce in February 2013 that they would stop delivering mail on Saturday as a way to reduce their costs. This was splashed across the news, and that’s what continues to cause some of the confusion.

While this was an announcement they made, soon afterward the Government Accountability Office came out with a report which said under current law, the post office was required to deliver mail six days a week, and couldn’t legally stop Saturday delivery.

There isn’t any word whether stopping delivery would also include closing post offices on Saturday as well, but I would assume that since this is a cost cutting measure, it would at least be considered. I will update the page as any news about this issue comes out.

    I am the middle class, a postal worker. You want to get rid of me? Reduce my hours? Why? So the rich can get richer and the poor can get poorer? Oh I see! You must be a republican. Why don’t you move to Mexico and see how it feels first. It’s working out isn’t it.

    I live in a small town and the post office hours have been greatly reduced over the last few years. it’s a pain trying to get things done there because it never seems to be open outside of work hours when I can’t get there because of work. And not they want to reduce or close even more. It’s a total mess.

    The people who wanted to get rid of Saturday mail was the Democrats.
    Look up the facts on your own statement.

    You idiot. You damn fool. What a simple, childish mind you have. Yes, people want you to lose your job/hours so they can get richer. WHAT? WHO? Oh wait, truth be told, there is a political party that insists on importing ALL of the southern hemisphere’s poorest and most uneducated peoples, thereby diluting the low-skilled labor force (of which you are part), taxing the welfare system, and, in turn, driving taxes up, which then sends more jobs of all skill levels overseas… EXCEPT IT’S THE DEMOCRATS. Idiot. Read a book. Think a thought. Vote Conservative.
