According to the article, the locations on the list have "lower foot traffic and revenue" and are located in smaller communities.

Each and every one of us can help save those small town Post Offices. What they need is revenue! Buy stamps, shop online, and ship USPS!

I can kind of see why people would prefer not to use USPS. Their tracking system is horrible, and I have never had luck getting customer service help. Our local workers are always kind of bitter, too. Not the carriers, but the people behind the service desk.

I wonder if their partnership with FedEx is helping at all. I know Smartpost packages go through USPS.
