Nearly 100 Indiana post offices to undergo review

Nearly 100 Indiana post offices are included in the U.S. Postal Service's list of facilities it will review as it looks to cut costs.

Some sites might be replaced by stores, libraries or government offices that offer postal services.

Most of the targeted sites are in rural areas and have low volume. The Indiana list includes branches in the southwestern towns of Mackey and Stendal, Mackey has about 100 residents, and Stendal's population is about 250. The list does not include any branches in the Indianapolis metropolitan area.

The postal service lost $8 billion last year as more customers shifted to online mail and the recession cut advertising mail. It currently operates nearly 32,000 retail outlets across the country.
