USPS to close 2 New England district offices
U.S. Postal Service district administrative offices in North Reading and in Manchester, N..H. will be among the six to be closed across the nation under the postal service cutbacks announced today.
The USPS office in Manchester serves both New Hampshire and Vermont and its operations will be transferred to the office in Portland, Maine.
The Associated Press reported this afternoon that the New Hampshire's congressional delegation has sent a letter urging postal service officials to reconsider the decision. They called the consolidation shortsighted and say eliminating an efficiently run, centrally located office is no way to overcome financial troubles.
