Post Office set to close in Washburn

Posted:
WASHBURN (KWWL) -- The Post Office in Washburn is set to close at the end of this week.  The branch of the Waterloo Post Office was regularly only open for a few hours a day. 
 
Officials say less than 20 people are holders of post office boxes at the location.  The U.S.P.S. says everyone will be getting home or curbside delivery.  People will need to drive to the main location in Waterloo or a HyVee to buy stamps or other postal services.

"We're a self supporting government agency and all the money we use for our daily operations comes from the sale of our products and services and we have to make sure we match up our resources with the work load and there just wasn't that much of a workload in Washburn, Iowa," USPS Communications Director Richard Watkins said.
