US Postal Service Drops Plans to Stop Saturday Delivery of Regular Mail

The Postal Service had intended to implement the new delivery frequency plan from the week of 5th August, 2013, although package delivery would have continued to be six-days-a-week.

Today USPS bowed to pressure from Congress to continue delivering regular letters on Saturdays.
