Video: Pittsburgh Residents Tired Of Mail Mix-Ups

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Jim Rietz can’t remember a time when he couldn’t rely on the U.S. Mail.

“You put something in the mail, you know it’s going to get there,” he said. “Somebody puts something in the mail, you know it’s going to come to you. It’s just one of those things you’ve always been able to count on.”

But for Rietz, that changed several months back. Days would pass when no mail came. Letters and checks that people had sent him never materialized. Distraught, he emailed all of his neighbors on Kinsman Street.

Video: Post Office Hour Cuts Upset A Growing North Dakota Town

It is about to get tricky for customers in Horace to mail their packages and get stamps. Their post office retail window will go from being open 8 hours a day to only being open for 6 hours a day. It’s part of a bigger trend that’s been happening in rural towns across the country.

The Horace post office serves the communities of Oxbow, Wildrice, and Hickson or about 1,400 people and some of these communities are on the grow. That is why the group "Concerned Citizens of 58047" are upset that their post office will be reducing their hours this year.

"The big slogan in town is invest in the valley, invest in your community. We believe it strongly, the post office is a big facet to what we do with our business. We need the availability to go there during business hours," says John Koerselman, a business owner in Horace.
