Residents to 'Fight Like Hell' Against Post Office Closure

With public announcements like this the USPS is using it as leverage and hanging it over the head of the local residents.

This is a situation where authorized USPS vendor would come in handy. A small store selling stamps, handling package shipments and offer PO Boxes might be an alternative. The USPS needs to find away to contract out more of their services and viable alternatives for low volume areas like this.
