The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect who attempted to rob the post offices in both the Yeadon and Darby.
The financially struggling U.S. Postal Service said Wednesday it will stop delivering mail on Saturdays but continue to disburse packages six days a week, an apparent end-run around an unaccommodating Congress.
Two of the region’s large mail processing centers will close: the Southeastern Pennsylvania Processing and Distribution Center on West Valley Road in Wayne, and the Reading Processing and Distribution Facility.
Among the best known local post offices on the list are the Benjamin Franklin post office in Old City, and ones in Manayunk, Roxborough, East Germantown, 30th Street train station, Overbrook, and St. Davids.
