Proposed Post Office Closing?

Posted By on Wed, Aug 5, 2009 at 2:43 PM

In an effort to save some of the $7 billion it expects to lose this year, the U.S. Postal Service has proposed closing a number of post offices nationwide.

They're currently reviewing 3,200 branches, and ABC had a list of 700 slated for possible closures.

I know, you don't care about all that. You just me to get to it and tell you if your favorite post office is going to close.

Well, it might ... if it's Lee Finance Station.

It looks like that's the George W. Lee post office at the corner of Mississippi Blvd. and Crump. It's a little slip of a post office, really, and used to be right next to a fire station that has since been torn down. (I think. I may do a drive by a little later to confirm.)
