Want to mail a letter in Hastings?
You'll soon have to do it by 3:55 p.m. Monday through Friday, two hours earlier than currently, in order for the letter to go out that same day.
The U.S. Postal Service recently posted a notice to the collection boxes at the Hastings location, 300 N. Hastings Ave., stating that collections times will be 11:55 a.m. and 3:55 p.m. Monday through Friday instead of 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. On Saturday, the collection time will be 2:25 p.m. instead of 4:30 p.m.
In an effort to process mail more efficiently and save more than $2 billion each year, the U.S. Postal Service is changing its collection times across the country.
