A decision on closing the post office on the pedestrian mall in downtown Winchester is on hold.
That's according to officials with the United States Postal Service. We were expecting to hear a decision by Tuesday.
Monday the postal service announced it is stalling plans to close 600 urban and suburban postal branch offices and satellite stations including the Winchester location.
Last Wednesday the post office announced a decision to keep hundreds of rural post offices open with shorter hours. The Winchester Post Office is not part of that plan.
We will continue to update you with any new information we receive.
