IMPERIAL - The Imperial Post Office will not be closing their doors anytime soon.

On Wednesday, NewsWest 9 reported that the Imperial Post Office would be closing their doors.

However, the United States Postal Service decided that small rural communities can keep their post offices.

They announced a new plan several weeks ago that those rural post offices will now only have two to six hours of window service each day.

The U.S.P.S. has been struggling financially because fewer people are using the service and this will help to cut costs.

Those reduced hours will be officially announced at the end of May and the U.S.P.S. will begin phasing the new hours in this upcoming fall.

The U.S.P.S. will once again meet with those small communities to get feedback on the new plan.
