NO MORE MAIL ON SATURDAY: Postal Service announces suspended Saturday service

February 6, 2013

The U.S. Postal Service will stop delivering mail on Saturdays in order to cut expenses.
However, packages will continue to be delivered six days a week under a plan aimed at saving about $2 billion, the financially struggling agency says.

In an announcement scheduled for later Wednesday, the service is expected to say the Saturday mail cutback would begin in August.

The move accentuates one of the agency’s strong points -- package delivery has increased by 14 percent since 2010, officials say, while the delivery of letters and other mail has declined with the increasing use of email and other Internet use.

Under the new plan, mail would still be delivered to post office boxes on Saturdays. Post offices now open on Saturdays would remain open on Saturdays.
