Post offices throughout the Bay Area are shortening their hours starting next month. Most changes will be to open 30 minutes to an hour later, while 10 post offices will close a half hour to an hour earlier. New hours will be posted on the post office doors and will be updated at www.usps.com on Feb. 20, when the new hours will take effect.
A U.S. Postal Service spokesman said that 30% to 35% of its business transactions now take place online. Also, marketing studies showed that most Bay Area customers don't arrive until after 9 a.m., with the biggest rush of activity between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Workers will shift their schedules for the new hours, which will not result in job losses.
