Starting in August, you’ll see less of your neighborhood letter carrier.

(Donahoe) “Mail delivery will occur Monday through Friday and we not deliver, nor collect mail on Saturday.”

Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe says the move will save the Postal Service $2 billion a year.

Package delivery will continue on Saturdays and Post Offices with regular Saturday hours will stay open for P.O. Box pickup.

There are questions on Capitol Hill, however, if such a move needs congressional approval. The Postmaster General argues it does not.
