No Saturday Mail | VideoSarahbeth Ackerman | 2/6/2013
The reason behind the move is technology. More and more people are using email and social media to communicate. Therefore, the amount of actual letters being sent out continues to drop. That means that U.S Postal service is making less money.
The postal service said by cutting Saturday delivery, it can save two billion dollars a year.
"We believe that by making this move, that it can be part of something that could keep the postal service solid and stable for many years to come," said Pete Nowacki with the United States Postal Service.
The post offices will remain open Monday through Friday. And, your letter carrier will still be delivering packages and medications on Saturdays.
