If you love getting your mail on Saturday you're in luck. That's because on Wednesday officials with the Post Office announced they're back tracking on their plan to end Saturday mail delivery.
In February officials with Post Office announced they planned to switch to five-day-a-week deliveries starting in August. They said it was a way to save the cash-strapped organization money. However, they never got the okay from members of Congress.
Janice Pride, a Morgantown resident, said the announcement the Post Office will continue to deliver letters came as welcome news.
"Not everyone has a computer," Pride said. "I don't see the point of getting rid of services that so many people rely on."
Senator Joe Manchin also took time on Thursday to praise the the move by the U.S. Postal Service. On Twitter Manchin said, "I'm so pleased to hear the USPS's decided to continue Saturday deliveries. It's tremendous news for our West Virginia rural communities."
Members of Congress said the Post Office should reopen negotiations with unions to lower labor costs and consider raising mail prices as a way to save money.
