Rather than continue to deal with the public outcry from rural post office users, the U.S. Postal Service decided this week to back off a plan to cut 3,700 small town post offices and instead reduce hours of operation.
According to the Associated Press, the move would have shut 1,400 of 3,700 low-revenue offices nationwide by May 15.
The decision would have affected the Mt. Holly Post Office which was slated for closure.
