Blaming the popularity of email, a decline in direct mail advertising and its congressionally-mandated requirement to pre-fund its employee retirement fund, the USPS has already proposed stopping Saturday mail delivery and even hinted at reducing deliveries to three-days-a-week by 2025.
You Don't Need No Stinking Post Office: In an effort to replace post office-like services in communities affected by the facility closures, the USPS also announced a "Village Post Offices" program under which local businesses, such as pharmacies, grocery stores and retailers would offer postal products and services such as stamps and flat-rate packaging.
"Our customer's habits have made it clear that they no longer require a physical post office to conduct most of their postal business," said Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe in a press release. "Today, more than 35 percent of the Postal Service's retail revenue comes from expanded access locations such as grocery stores, drug stores, office supply stores, retail chains, self-service kiosks, ATMs and usps.com, open 24/7."
For place that do not have grocery stores, drug stores, office supply stores, or retail chains, there will be... trips to places that do, I guess.
