The U.S. Postal Service is expected to announce a plan today to put 3,600 branches nationwide under review for closure in an effort to cut costs after reporting an $8 billion revenue lost last year.
The USPS continues to struggle with its public image as an increasingly obsolete institution since so many have shunned relatively high-priced "snail mail" for free email and file sharing services on the Internet. But USPS' shipping services still remain indispensable because you can't ship a package over the Internet...yet.
So, our Patch question of the day is: When was the last time you found yourself in the post office? What services do you use? And how often do you use them?
