After decisions announced by the U.S. Postal Service this week, mail service in the area may be changing.
Thursday, the U.S. Postal Service announced four mail-processing facilities in the state will close. They include Clarksburg, Bluefield, Parkersburg and Petersburg.
The Clarksburg center is the mail-processing center at Eastpointe. Cathy Yarosky, spokeswoman for the USPS, said the post office located at the center will remain open.
Yarosky said some five months ago, the USPS began studying the possibility of changing its service for first-class mail and periodicals. Today, the standard for first class mail is one- to three-day delivery. The standard for periodicals is one- to nine-day delivery.
