Customer convenience

USPS issues statement on access to retail products, services

The Postal Service remains committed to providing convenient customer access to postal products and services, according to a recent USPS statement.

The statement was issued in response to online reports that questioned the Postal Service’s efforts to offer products and services at some retail outlets.

“Claims of privatization are false and misleading,” the statement said. “We have no interest in privatizing the Postal Service. We are looking to grow our business, to provide expanded access to products and services through retail partners, as well as in our own locations. By locating postal services inside established businesses, we are helping customers save time, and in many cases, have the benefit of longer hours seven days a week than at regular Post Offices.”

The Postal Service’s effort to make products and services more accessible is part of broader corporate strategy to strengthen the organization.
