Columbus businesses and residents surveyed Wednesday said the end of Saturday mail delivery will not affect them to any serious extent.
The Republic spoke to various people about the U.S. Postal Service’s announcement Wednesday to end Saturday deliveries starting in August.
Representatives from Nichols’ Body Company, Carver Toyota, Gramz Bakery & Cafe and Max’s Jewelry were among those who said they won’t be affected by the postal service’s decision, partly because it wouldn’t apply to packages.
Kelly Glick, owner of Tre Biccieri at 425 Washington St., said that although her restaurant sometimes gets mail on Saturdays, she can always wait until Monday without any problems.
Bartholomew County residents Suzanne Ruiz, Susan Ketchum, Jennifer Riley and Spring Bell said the suspension of mail delivery one day a week would not be a problem for them either.
“I do a lot of my bills online,” Ketchum said. “It’s just not a big deal.”
