The U.S. Postal Service has released its long-awaited list of branches that will be closed to cut its $8.5 billion deficit, and Verona’s tiny outpost is not among them. Some 3,700 post offices across the country are being closed and replaced with a new “Village Post Office” concept that would allow approved retailers to sell postal services.

The list of 50 New Jersey closings includes one post office in West Orange and four in Newark.

  1. This is great news. I love the Verona Post office and avoid all others. I was just there today.

  2. Now if they would just get rid of the 1 staff member that talks way too much and s-l-o-w-s everything down!

  3. I go out of my way to neighboring Post Offices because the service in Verona is lame. People who can’t talk and work at the same time shouldn’t talk! She moves at a snails pace. Essex Fells and Roseland are the best!
