US Postal Service Targets Maryland Branches for Closure

The U.S. Postal Service has targeted nine offices in Maryland for possible closure. Read more to find out which ones might go under!

USPS is under great financial stress. On July 30, it issued a notice that it intended to study offices that were "candidates for discontinuance." While USPS was careful to say that this was not a done deal, the following offices are clearly on the chopping block:

Eastpoint Mall, Baltimore
Fells Point Station, Baltimore
Franklin Station, Baltimore
Mt. Washington Station, Baltimore
Towson Towne Center, Towson
Derwood, Rockville
Friendship Heights, Bethesda
Landover Hills, Hyattsville
Silver Spring Center, Silver Spring

See the full list here.

If you want to save any of these offices, you had better contact your Senators and Congressman pronto and make sure your friends do the same!
