New hours for Hilltop post office
The Hilltop Post Office will reduce hours at the end of October.
Because of the significant drop in mail volume and economic recession, the U.S. Postal Service is expected to incur a $7 billion budget shortfall this year. As a result, the USPS has implemented several strategies to try and offset the situation, including a revision of Post Office hours.
“We’re trying to find ways to offer the same excellent service for our customers while staying within our budget,” said Columbus Postmaster Robin Ware.
Beginning Oct. 24, the retail window at the Hilltop Finance branch will change to 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. and 2 - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Saturday.
Mail delivery will be unaffected by the change.

Are we going to notice a reduction in hours? After waiting so long for a new post office in the Greater Hilltop community, we were given a single employee that closes the post office for a lunch break because there is noone else there to run the counter and a lobby and post office boxes that are all but completely useless to anyone that has a job during daytime hours. I can go to Grove City or Westland Mall and have 24 hour access to a post office box and a full staff for counter needs. It's a shame the folks at USPS didn't give MY neighborhood the same consideration. Can we get discounted Hilltop postage rates???? Yeah, I know...
