Dozens of post offices around Chattanooga to slash hours

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN. (Times Free Press) -- From Turtletown, Tenn., to Hollywood, Ala., the U.S. Postal Service is poised to chop operating hours at about 60 rural post offices around the region.

When the USPS is done, patrons and postmasters will have as little as two hours a day to do business at the hardest-hit post offices.

The cutbacks in service are part of a massive, nationwide effort by the postal service to reduce hours at more than 13,000 rural post offices over the next two years in hopes of saving $500 million annually.

Post offices on the 260-page cutback list could see their work weeks reduced from around 40 hours to 30, 20 or even 10 hours.
