Hours that post office retail windows will be open have been expanded.

New hours are 9 a.m. to 5:30 pm. Mondays through Fridays and 8:30 a.m. to noon Saturdays.Postmaster Phil Kemp said that window hours in post offices across the nation were reduced last February after Congress ordered cutbacks.

"It is now clear that savings generated will make it possible for the Postal Service to meet the requirements of the budget cuts. So the time has come to readjust window service in a way that best meets our customers' needs," said Kemp.
