How Will Mail Service Change in Port, Saukville with No Saturday Delivery?

U.S. Postal Service Saturday delivery will be eliminated by August 1. Check out the hours for your local post office.

Deeming Saturday delivery “no longer sustainable,” The U.S. Postal Service announced Wednesday it will eliminate Saturday delivery of mail by Aug. 1.

Saturday is the lightest mail delivery day by volume and many businesses are closed on Saturdays, according to the U.S. Postal Service.

Even though there will not be Saturday delivery, with the exception of Express Mail, local post offices that are currently open on Saturday would remain open. Mail accepted at Post Offices on Saturdays will be processed on Monday.

A 2012 Rasmussen poll and a 2010 Gallup poll on mail delivery found that the majority of U.S. residents surveyed were ok with eliminating Saturday delivery.

Here are the hours for post offices around the area:

PORT WASHINGTON
104 E. Main St.
Monday-Friday: 8:30am - 5pm
Saturday: 9am - 12pm
Sunday: Closed

SAUKVILLE
600 W Dekora St.
Monday-Friday: 8:30am - 1pm, 2pm - 4:30pm
Saturday: 8:30am - 10:30am
Sunday: Closed

With the amount of useful mail we get, not counting parcels, they could drop the delivery to 3 days a week for residential. Commercial may need it a little more. Seems that all we get most days in a given week is junk mail.

2 days a week would be fine
