Here is one story that I will be following closely. As a result of economic downturn as well less volume this historic Raleigh NC landmark is in jeopardy of closing. Here is an excerpt from the ABC11 story.
RALEIGH (WTVD) — A downtown Raleigh landmark that has been in service continually for nearly 135 years is set to be shutdown.
The Century Post Office at the Federal Building on Fayetteville Street has been in operation since 1878 — it was actually the first post office built in the south following the Civil War.
Now, the US Postal Service says it wants to close the office in mid-July, citing a 20 percent decline in mail volume and lost revenue of $8.5 billion in the last two years.
