The stamps may say forever, but your local post office does not

No one is losing money like the US Postal Service.

They're looking at possibly closing some 3,700 post offices and more than a dozen of them in northeast Ohio.

Nationwide the number of post offices on the review list is 3,653.

People just aren't using them like they used to and that's the explanation given today by the US postmaster general.

And so some, well a lot, of post offices will be closing.

We took a look at the list in the Cleveland area. 

At the Euclid Post Office, on Euclid Rashanda Watkins says this shouldn't be one of them.

"It's busy every day, it's always busy. So you can't understand why this one? I have no idea why this one and the other one is so much further away for the people who live on this side of Euclid," said Rashanda Watkins.

Still others, like the Glenville-Brantenahl location on E. 105th and the Collinwood Post Office on E. 152nd, just don't seem to have the business to keep them open.

Part of this review plan is to see if closing a post office and opening what they are calling a 'Village Post Office' is a better idea. That could be anything from an automated machine, to a location inside like a pharmacy or grocery store.
