Following recent U.S. Postal Service announcements of post office closings, some in nearby towns, more than one resident has apparently stopped in the in the asking if it might be closed.
But as Anne Larson points out, the Postal Service is looking at opening smaller post offices in other pharmacies or retail businesses similar to what we already have.
In a July 26 news release, the Postal Service announced plans to bolster the model of the "Village Post Office" that "would be operated by local businesses, such as pharmacies, grocery stores and other appropriate retailers, and would offer popular postal products and services such as stamps and flat-rate packaging."
So it doesn’t look like we’re in danger of losing the postal branch. Kensington may represent a model for everyone else.
