That's exactly why I said this, "I'm sure there are other ripple effects by not having mail delivery on Saturday, but I'm sure they could be worked around and gotten used to, also."
Other business' will have to change the way they operate if Saturday mail delivery is halted. We'll get used to it, but it's still a change that will need adapted to.
Zhiz, the add in the paper is just in the paper, like I said. There is a separate flyer (not available online), but that is for the weekly sales, not for the Sat to Tues sales.
I doubt the local store will go online, but like I said, it's a ripple effect. Maybe they will go online and pass the cost on to us, since the PO will be dropping their services... or have to start print a day early, on their day off.
The post office might see costs cut, but I doubt the consumer will.
Someone will have to pick up their slack.
