Updated: Greendale Mail Carriers Moving to Franklin Post Office

The retail services and operations will remain the same.

Mail carriers who were stationed at the will be moved over to the Franklin-Hales Corner Post Office.

Tim Ratliff, a representative of United State Postal Service, said that the change will not affect customers.  It will only be an internal change.

The Greendale Post Office will continue with its retail services. People will still be able to drop off mail, package, manage P.O. Boxes, etc.

The internal change is part of a optimization project plan to make best use of the current facilities by saving money and cutting costs, said Ratliff. The change will take place in November.

Some of the mail carriers will be transferred to Franklin or placed in other positions. Others are being let go.

This is so non cost saving, close the whole station if you plan to move the carriers, and really save money.

I too would like to know what monies they are saving. I would think it would add to the cost because the carriers would still have to transfer the mail from Greendale to the Franklin facility in some way. Can't the process be explained more???

I agree. I don't get this myself. And for "Others are being let go.", the last I heard they are on a skeleton crew already, with mail carriers working 2 or more routes. My instinct tells me that the Greendale Post Office will eventually be phased out.

Let us know how this will work from our perspective? I like knowing my mailman even if I don't see him everyday. Saving money?? I doubt it.

The only cost savings I see is from firing mail carriers, and that's a short term solution at best. This definitely affects customers because we are clearly expected to accept a reduction in service quality. It's a skewed priority system that places customers at the bottom. Instead of risking product quality, I would prefer them to find their savings elsewhere, such as executive salaries. That might inspire them to make better business decisions.

Sad and disappointed!!!

I thought that I noticed familiar faces had disappeared. I seldom use the Greendale branch in favor of others closer to where I shop. And I live in Greendale! I believe the Greendale facility is obsolete.
