Hundreds of closed post offices? Didn’t see that coming. Their newest commercial being about as sexy as a Powerpoint on engineering schematics, I thought I’d dig out this oldie but goodie from 1986. Two main reasons:
1) Never caught up. Having a monopoly on the country’s mail for so long meant they didn’t have to worry about competition. No competition, no reason to innovate. Talk about bailouts. RUn out of funds? Up the cost of a stamp and Uncle Sam’s got your back. Cha-ching. And they sure aren’t “half” the going rate of others anymore either.
2) The net and email.
Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
