Cape Girardeau postal distribution center to close

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The Cape Girardeau postal distribution center will close by the end of the year.

Richard Watkins with the U.S. Postal Service says the postal service accelerated the closure due to the lack of mail volume coming through the center.

There is no exact timeline of when the distribution center will close.

The Cape Girardeau distribution center is one of 55 distribution centers nationwide that its closure was moved up to this year instead of 2014.

This will affect 12 to 18 workers. Watkins says all of those workers will be offered jobs within a 50 mile radius of Cape Girardeau.
