(WICHITA, Kan.) — Dillons Marketplaces and grocery stores will no longer be official US Postal Service locations soon. The supermarket chain is opting to not renew its contract with the USPS. It will instead become third party vendor.
That means people will still be able to buy postage and send letters and packages, but Dillons will not be able to guarantee a delivery time since it will not be an official post office.
A representative for Dillons says part of the reason for the change is because it wants to use different mail sorting technology that was prohibited by the contract.
Dillons says the change over from contracted vendor to a third party vendor will happen in stages over 2012.
Sheila Lowry, a spokesperson for Dillons, says the store will not raise prices for postal services.
