Norfolk NE post office moves to processing center


The Postal Service has "relocated" the post office in Norfolk, Nebraska (pop. 24,000).  The post office in the middle of downtown Norfolk closed this week, and a new office was opened in a USPS processing center a couple of miles away.  The new post office is now at the dead end of an industrial road (it's called South Pine Industrial Road), and it looks pretty remote.  You can be see the striking contrast between the two locations on Google Streetviews: The downtown post office is here; the processing center is here.  The Postal Service will save $50,000 a year in rent, but who knows how much it will lose in revenue by moving to such an inhospitable location?  Read more.
