The U.S. Postal Service is trying to cut costs and raise revenue. Among the ideas to make that happen is delivering beer and wine, while ending most door-to-door and Saturday deliveries.
The agency lost $16 billion last year, so changes are going to have to be made somewhere. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe told the Associated Press on Thursday that delivering alcohol could raise as much as $50 million in annual revenue.
So not only would the postal service make its money back, but they could really flip this alcohol delivery game into a profit. It makes you wonder why they didn't try this long before that money ran out.
