How Will Mail Service Change in Muskego with No Saturday Delivery?

U.S. Postal Service Saturday delivery will be eliminated by August 1. Check out the hours for your local post office.

Deeming Saturday delivery “no longer sustainable,” The U.S. Postal Service announced Wednesday it will eliminate Saturday delivery of mail by Aug. 1.

Saturday is the lightest mail delivery day by volume and many businesses are closed on Saturdays, according to the U.S. Postal Service.

Even though there will not be Saturday delivery, with the exception of Express Mail, local post offices that are currently open on Saturday would remain open. Mail accepted at Post Offices on Saturdays will be processed on Monday.

A 2012 Rasmussen poll and a 2010 Gallup poll on mail delivery found that the majority of U.S. residents surveyed were ok with eliminating Saturday delivery.

Here are the hours for post offices around the area:

Monday-Friday: 9am - 5:30pm

95 percent of what I receive in the mail goes straight to the shredder or recycle bin. Once or twice a week residential delivery would be fine with me.

I agree. Other than a magazine or 2, which I could easily go without, there's not much I get in the mail anymore that I want. Maybe the grocery ads and coupons. The rest is all junk mail.

Id agree with Mike mail a couple days a week would be fine!!

It was inevitable really and long overdue. Privatization is the key to saving the postal service.
