for possible closure as part of a national review of operations. Most of the offices are located in small towns. Two of them in Cache Valley: one in Trenton and one in Weston. Only two stations are being considered along the urban Wasatch Front, including one at Salt Lake City International Airport and one in Elberta in Utah County. The postal service announced Tuesday they are considering 3,700 facilities for closure nationwide. The service says many of the offices could be replaced by village post offices that are located in retail outlets including grocery stores, office supply chains and ATM kiosks. Postmaster General Patrick Donahue says in a news release customers no longer rely as heavily on physical offices.
