The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) announced today that it has approved the relocation of Oakwood / Nat King Cole Station, located at 265 S. Western Avenue, to a yet-to-be-determined location as close to the current site as possible.
The Oakwood / Nat King Cole relocation and building sale is part of a nationwide response by the Postal Service to generate revenue, reduce costs and operate more efficiently in the face of dramatic decreases in mail volume, congressional mandates and other economic factors that have caused net losses of over $25 billion in the past five years. The Postal Service does not receive tax dollars to fund its operations and facilities.

So nothing new then. And apparently no new location in the works either.
We ignore Nat King Cole and shutter the place? Why not divide it, keeping the post office part, and selling the rest? Why does the struggling Postal system do everything it can to alienate as many customers as possible? Not making enough money? Raise the rates. Bad results? Raise the rates again. Still not good? Shut it down; that’ll teach em. No intelligent life forms in the USPS.
