Postal Service Closings Focus of Tonight's Meeting
East Arlington and Arlington Heights post offices could be closed due to decline in business.
The two Arlington locations are on a list of 3,700 branches nationwide considered for foreclosure. They are two of Arlington's three post offices, as the list does not include the Postal Service's main branch in Arlington Center.
The Postal Service, which lost $8 billion last year, said the possible closures are due to more and more of its business being conducted online or in grocery, drug of office supply stores, among other retail outlets.
The meeting with Postal Service officials begins at 6 p.m. tonight, Oct. 3, at Town Hall.
