Back in February, the U.S. Postal Service announced its plans to end Saturday mail delivery for regular mail, such as letters, although the organization would still continue delivering packages. It looks as though USPS is retracting their plans to stop Saturday mail service according to a recently published memo.
In the memo, USPS pointed blame squarely at Congress for passing a continuing budget resolution that would prohibit a new mail delivery schedule. Congress wrote in the budget resolution they would continue funding of the USPS as long as it was able to maiming the same level of service it did since 1983.
The USPS’ plan to eradicate Saturday standard mail would have started in August of this year, but it looks like for the moment, they’re putting those original ideas in their back pocket as the organization’s board is currently looking at other ways of increasing revenue, which may include possibly raising the cost of postage stamps. Until they come up with a solution, you can be rest assured your Saturday mail of Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons and Maxim magazine subscription will continue to be delivered at their usual schedule.
