How Will Mail Service Change in Waukesha with No Saturday Delivery?

U.S. Postal Service Saturday delivery will be eliminated by August 1. Check out the hours for your local post office.

Deeming Saturday delivery “no longer sustainable,” The U.S. Postal Service announced Wednesday it will eliminate Saturday delivery of mail by Aug. 1.

Saturday is the lightest mail delivery day by volume and many businesses are closed on Saturdays, according to the U.S. Postal Service.

Even though there will not be Saturday delivery, with the exception of Express Mail, local post offices that are currently open on Saturday would remain open. Mail accepted at Post Offices on Saturdays will be processed on Monday.

A 2012 Rasmussen poll and a 2010 Gallup poll on mail delivery found that the majority of U.S. residents surveyed were ok with eliminating Saturday delivery.

Here are the hours for post offices around the area:

Waukesha
300 E. Broadway
Monday-Friday: 9am - 5pm
Saturday: 9am - 12pm
Sunday: Closed

Brookfield
17345 Civic Dr.
Monday-Friday: 9am - 6:30pm
Saturday: 9:30am - 3pm
Sun: Closed

The catalogs, flyers and junk mail will just be delivered on Monday. That is how it will change.

Well, I guess that about pounds another nail into the coffin of the Waukesha Freeman, which distributes its 5-days-a-week papers in the mail, including Saturdays. Might be about time they get real with a website worth looking at.

No more asking a neighbor to take in the mail on the weekend when out of town, 1 day of less junk mail, my packages will still come. I'm all for it. They need to save money somewhere, this is a good start.
