USPS will seek to keep rural post offices open

The U.S. Postal Service will seek to keep hundreds of rural post offices open, but with shorter hours.

In an effort to ease concerns over wide-scale budget cuts, the Postmaster General says the new plan will save the agency half a billion dollars each year.

More than 3,000 low-revenue post offices, mostly in rural areas, were expected to close or consolidate in 2012.
