September 3, 2009 (CHICAGO) --The U.S. Postal Service has narrowed the number of post offices facing possible closure from 700 to about 400 nationwide. The postal service faces a deficit of up to $7 billion this year. The agency blames the recession and the move from traditional mail to the Internet.
The Chicago locations that could be shuttered are at 4642 South Bishop, 2148 East 71st, 104th and South Ewing, and 2405 North Sheffield.
