Saturday Mail

Post  Pez on Wed Mar 10, 2010 9:39 am

I for one can easily live without Saturday mail delivery. In fact I would be ok if I received mail only weekly.

What are the other thoughts?

I don't know. My Netflix routine is usually watch the movie the same day I get it, shove it in the mail the following morning, get movie two days later. Three days a week and I could probably only max out getting one movie a week (since I have the one movie at a time subscription). Boooo!

All I can think is that the Post Office is going to lose a lot of business at Christmas, since I think it's FedEx that will deliver on Saturday.

I'm fine with no Saturday delivery. I don't like the idea anyway of my mail sitting in the mailbox all weekend if I'm gone.

If they go this route, I'm sure they'll make an exception for the Christmas season and open up for "Special Christmas Hours."

Don't care either way, we have a keyed multi-unit and I very rarely even open it up on Sat even though I drive by the unit 1/2 dozen times on Saturday.

I don't mind them going to 5 days a week I just don't like the ending of Saturday deliever. It should be broken down to one of the days in the middle of the week like Wednesday. If it is a holiday weekend then no mail Saturday, Sunday and Monday. I think Tuesday is the slowest mail day (volume) but then you have the 3 day in the row again on holidays.

It will hurt businesses like netflix having two days in a row and as a netflix subscriber I would rather not have two days in a row.

So should the USPS consider the number of Netflix subscribers as the determining factor? geek Razz

No they should go by volume of business to see which day has the least amount. Next they should look at how best to serve their customer; is being closed for business 2 days in a row and a 3rd day on holiday weekends best at meeting their customers need. Using those two business models I don't believe that would be the best unless they continue to want to lose business.
