Minnesota has 882 Post Offices.

The Alberta, Clontarf, Dumont,Holloway and Norcross Post Offices are among those being reviewed for closing.

Coming under review doesn't necessarily mean an office will close.

Once an office is selected for a review, people served by that office will have 60 days to file their comments. If an office is to be closed, they will be able to appeal to the independent Postal Regulatory Commission.

A complete list of Post Offices under review is available at

Post Master General Pat Donahoe said painful cuts in the number of post office locations, employees and days of service would be necessary or the U.S. Postal Service would go broke by next year.

The agency lost $8 billion last year.
