Collister P.O., 22 Other Idaho Locations Tagged For Closure


Boise's Collister Post Office branch is one of 23 Idaho locations and 3,700 branches across the nation that the U.S. Postal Service has targeted for closure. The Postal Service released a list of the locations today, representing about 10 percent of all post offices in the country.

In its 2010 fiscal year, which ended in September, the Postal Service lost $8.5 billion. Postal officials estimated that the branch closings could save as much as $200 million. Other cost-cutting measures the agency is considering include ending Saturday delivery and raising stamp prices.
