CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – The closure of the Clarksburg Postal Distribution Center remains on schedule. Cathy Yarosky, with the United States Postal Service, said the facility will be closed come the end of September but the beginning, of the end, has already started.

“We have already consolidated about half, of that network, from Clarksburg into Charleston. That was completed July 1,” according to Yarosky.

The close of the Clarksburg center was announced back in December 2011. Despite attempts by the union to keep the facility open the postal service made it clear with the changing nature of mail it just wasn’t an option.

“The postal service simply does not have the mail volume anymore to justify the size and the capacity, of our current mail processing network nationwide,” explained Yarosky. “We are losing approximately 25 million dollars every day.”

One hundred and five employees at the Clarksburg operation will eventually be impacted. But Yarosky stressed that doesn’t mean they’re losing their jobs.

“There are landing positions for many of them and there will be and have been some reassignments. But we do not lay anyone off,” said Yarosky.

However, some employees have chosen not to move where the jobs are.

The closure of the distribution center, in two months, will not impact customer business at the operation. The retail store and bulk mail business will continue to operate out of the current location.

Yarosky said the ultimate goal is to return the U.S. Postal Service to long term profitability while keeping mail service affordable, for its customers.

    Sorry for that unannounced (and unexpected) break everybody.

    Simply restrict it and ensure they're using their time
    wisely. Game titles start a whole " new world " of possibilities

    Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just
    wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything
    you can suggest? I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any
    assistance is very much appreciated.

    Let's see, keep the Downtown Clarksburg Post Office with very little access to the public or the Distribution Center on top of Bridgeport Hill where there is ready access and which serves both Clarksburg and Bridgeport adequately? In fact, it serves Fairmont as well, as it is the only Post in the area to deposit mail where it will be picked up and processed after 4:00 p.m. At least that was the case prior to the latest curtailment of service.

    The USPS is a joke. The real problem is management. Managements job is to continue to mess everything up. The USPS is way to top heavy in management. They are paid big money and do nothing to earn it. If people would goggle "USPS' they would be alarmed at the money that is wasted by upper level management. There are 2 sets or rules for The USPS. Management lies every day to the workers. If 90% of management was let go and the workers were in charge the problem would fix its self in 5-10 years. How can you explain the bonus system that management gets if the USPS is losing Billions of dollars. How do you reward non productive management employees. So sad that the USPS will go away.

    Maybe if they cut the benefits just a bit they wouldn't be in this shape. I have a college degree and work for the county government and don't make as much as postal service employees do and in most cases, I am better educated. Pay them what they are worth, which considering I've not gotten mail that was sent to me, wouldn't be what they make.

      They deserve to go bankrupt. Always raising the price of stamps, but NEVER improving service and that is undisputed.

    I was told that this means ALL mail coming from east of the old Clarksburg Distribution Center will now go to the center in Washington DC. I wonder how long this will delay regular mail shipments in the affected areas?

    I do understand the need for budget cutting and shutting down parts of the Postal Service's operations is part of that. However, how will the USPS hope to attract more customers (or win customers back) IF mail delivery becomes slower and slower? Sounds like a Catch-22 with no real answer.
