U.S. Postal Service decides against closing 3,700 rural post offices

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- On Wednesday, the U.S. Postal Service scrapped a plan that would have closed 3,700 rural post offices across the country.

The postal service still needs to cut costs, but officials now have other ideas.

These changes came just one week before a freeze on closing post offices was set to expire.

The postal service wanted to give Congress an opportunity to make some reforms that could help them to become financially stable.

While they waited, they talked to people who would have been impacted by the closure of the rural post offices and decided to try a different route. Instead, they have decided to shorten hours at some locations.

ABC 57's Jason Aubry reports.
