Postal Money Pit: USPS spends millions renting empty buildings

From Fox25 Boston:

The cash-strapped Postal Service is spending $200 million a year renting empty buildings, including a massive, nearly empty warehouse complex in Springfield that’s costing $2.6 million a year, a FOX Undercover investigation has found.The Postal Service is stuck with a long-term lease for a 41,200-square-foot Brookdale Drive building that it’s never used and another, bigger building next door that is used as a storage shed and for seasonal mail processing. Combined, the two buildings cost the Postal Service $216,000-a-month to rent thanks to a 2004 lease they signed which doesn’t expire for another year.
