CHADBOURN, NC (WECT) - Some area post offices will close early on Wednesdays and completely on Saturdays, starting May 18th, according to a spokesperson for the U.S. Postal Service.
The moves will affect several post offices in North Carolina, including Atlantic Beach, Castle Hayne, Chadbourn, Clarkton, Erwin, Holly Ridge, Kenansville, Lumber Bridge, Parkton, Seven Springs, Beulaville, Bridgeton, Lake Waccamaw, Winnabow and Dudley.
The office will close at noon on Wednesdays. The moves are being made to save money, according to the postal service. Signs were posted this week on the affected offices.
The moves aren't sitting well with some. Chadbourn Mayor Fax Rector says he was taken by surprise and has reached out to Congressman Mike McIntyre to see what if anything can be done.
