7/20/15 – USPS released the following statement regarding privatizing the postal service and convenient customer access to postal products and services.
The Postal Service remains committed to providing convenient customer access to postal products and services. Claims of privatization are false and misleading. We have no interest in privatizing the Postal Service. We are looking to grow our business, to provide expanded access to products and services through retail partners, as well as in our own locations. By locating postal services inside established businesses, we are helping customers save time, and in many cases, have the benefit of longer hours seven days a week than at regular Post Offices.
