SOUTH BEND – The U.S. Postal Service says it isn't waiting any longer for permission from Congress to quit delivering mail on Saturdays.

Here is a look at the big changes unveiled on Wednesday:

The USPS plans to start five-day-a-week delivery in August.

Packages, though, will continue to be delivered on Saturdays.

Mail would still be delivered to Post Office boxes on Saturdays, and Post Offices now open on Saturdays would remain open.

Many of you had something to say about the Post Office cutting Saturday delivery.

WSBT asked people in South Bend as they went to the post office.

“I think it’s sensible,” said Toni Riehm. “They have to save money somehow. I just wish they would extend their hours during the week.”

“I don’t see any fuss about it at all,” said Barbara Harris.

“It is a business that has to be run,” Bob Guros added. “The U.S. Postal Service to my understanding does not get any tax money, so being in business myself, I know what it’s like, where you have to watch your costs, and you have to cut costs where possible. Quite honestly, I’ve looked forward to that happening, and I don’t think that’s going to affect me very much.”
