  •  That is a return to the past. (3+ / 0-)

    I can even remember when one post office around here was in a small burg and was housed in the same building [sort of a shack really] as small appliance repair. Another post office was run out of an addition to a village home. They offered full service and also had rural routes. Both post masters operated their home/business and the postal duties. The areas have since boomed and we have regular stand alone post offices which cover the areas and they fudged the zip codes around a bit, redistricted the service areas.

      that said "Change in ownership of local store may affect Post Office within." Now in this case I did not go read the article, but you never know- it might be a good thing because once when I was in a hurry to get my credit card bill out I left it with them at the window and they lost it.
