CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - The U.S. Postal Service has released a list of 3,700 post offices across the country that could be shut down to help save money.
The Postal Service introduced Tuesday the Village Post Office as a potential retail replacement option for affected communities around the nation. Village Post Offices will be operated by local businesses and would offer popular postal products and services.
"The Village Post Office will offer another way for us to meet our customers' needs." said Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe.
"The Postal Service of the future will be smaller, leaner and more competitive and it will continue to drive commerce, serve communities and deliver value," added Donahoe in a press release Tuesday.
Several locations in Cape County are on the list the close retail offices.
