EXCLUSIVE: The Downtown Post Office will be moving ahead with their closure plans, and relocate their retail offices to the Swarthmore location, TLS has learned through exclusively obtained documents. USPS says the economic downturn and increased diversion to the Internet have caused the company great losses, forcing the closure.
Even when the economy recovers, the volumes are not expected to return to previous levels.
The company says the optimization process will allow them to optimize space in existing postal facilities and consolidate some operations.
The company assures that their customers will still receive the ‘high level of postal services’ at their Swarthmore location. (1820 Swarthmore Avenue). TLS-CCP.
