WENDEL, Pa. (KDKA) — People in a Westmoreland County community are unhappy with the Postal Service after their Post Office was closed.
When Nicholas White pulled up to the Wendel Post Office, he was met with an empty building. The building closed on Feb. 13.
The Post Office did not have a delivery service, so people would have to come to the building to get their mail. Wendel’s residents have been told by the Postal Service to now pick up their mail at the Manor Post Office, which is about a 10-minute drive.
So why did the U.S. Postal Service shut down this small Post Office in an area that relies on it? According to the Post Office, it had to do with the rent.
