What used to be an overnight trip across town for First-Class mail is about to get longer and slower under the U.S. Postal Service's plan to close Rochester's mail processing center.
The Postal Service said Thursday that in Minnesota, it will move processing from Duluth and Rochester to the St. Paul Processing and Distribution Center in Eagan and processing operations in St. Cloud, Mankato and Bemidji to a center in Minneapolis. In Rochester, only the Processing and Distribution Facility is closing. Post offices in the city will remain open.
