    Though closing rural offices doesn't save much. At one time a rural office needed three or so full timers to run it- postmaster, clerk, carrier, etc.. The unions have now agreed to allow workers in small post offices to work in multiple roles, thus one person can sort the mail, deliver it, and then open up the Post Office for a couple of hours to serve retail customers. They need a carrier anyways and renting space in a small town is cheap, so closing a small town Post Office doesn't save peanuts.
