Postal Service may end Sat. delivery

A U.S. mail carrier walks her route in a neighorhood in Santa Ana, Calif. The financially struggling U.S. Postal Service wants to stop delivering mail on Saturdays.
Proposals

Saturday delivery of mail, such as letters and magazines that are going to street addresses, would end. Delivery would be only Monday through Friday.

Mail addressed to P.O. boxes still would be delivered on Saturday.

Post offices now open on Saturday would remain open on Saturday.

Delivery of packages of all sizes would remain the same, i.e., six days a week.

The change would begin the week of Aug. 5.

Officials estimated that the cutback would save around $2 billion annually when it was fully in place.
