MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Postal Service is broke and on Monday, they’ll unveil a temporary fix, which means your cards and letters are going to show up later.

The Postal Service is going to slow down delivery, so you’ll never stamp a letter in Maple Grove and have it show up in Eden Prairie the next day.

The USPS is trying to slice $3 billion from its budget and they’ll be closing hundreds of processing centers.

Slower delivery could be a big deal for people who get mail-order prescription drugs, or time-sensitive weekly magazines.
