USPS to End Saturday Mail Service

WASHINGTON D.C. (CNN) — Saturday mail service will soon be a thing of the past.

U.S. Postal Service officials announced Wednesday it will stop delivering first-class mail on Saturdays, but packages will still be delivered.

The change, which goes into effect the week of Aug. 5, is expected to save a few billion dollars. The agency also plans to implement a number of other cost cutting measures.

Postal officials have been calling on Congress to pass legislation to ease their fiscal pain.

    As a small business owner in Eugene. I’m unhappy to hear that the USPS will not be delivering on Saturdays.The USPS is important to keep goods and services moving quickly. In a world that is increasingly requiring us to react faster and deliver services faster no Saturday mail is a huge step in the wrong direction.
