Stay 1st-Classy, Post Office

New, 1 comment

The Postal Service lost a reported $8 billion last year. Five Post Offices are set to close in San Francisco in December, with another eight in the Bay Area due to a steep decline in the USPS's retail business. Blame email for displacing the letter; Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and texting for the demise of the postcard, but the list looks like it hits neighborhoods less likely to employ digital means of communication. Sadly, the closure will not affect the tsunami of holiday catalogues about to wash over us, but let's hope they stay open until January 1. We have fruitcakes to mail. [SF Gate]
