First the Saugatuck Post Office shut down.
Then came word that the US Postal Service wants to sell its downtown Westport building.
Now that sale might be imminent.
An “06880” reader reports that a veteran postal clerk told customers yesterday that the Town of Westport may purchase the property — forcing the Post Office out of its longtime, very convenient location by the beginning of summer.
According to the postal worker, “It’s close to a done deal.”
The movie theaters are gone. The Y wants to leave. The Post Office may well beat the Y to it.
I say, good riddance. Now we can find room for what downtown really needs: A women’s clothing store.
