Post offices here in Middle Georgia are under the microscope today as they face the possibility of closing.
One post office is in Allentown. The Allentown Office is one of 3,700 post offices nationwide getting eyed for closure. The United Postal Service says since more and more people aren't going to post offices it's considering closing 1 in 10.
The Allentown office serves around 400 people and residents say losing it would be a big blow to their community.
"We got to cut the budget some how and if that's the way to do it. It'll be a shame, but I can understand why they did," says resident Eugene O'Neal.
Ideal, in Macon County, is another city that might loses it's post office. There's a plan to replace several post offices with "village post offices,” which would be in convenience stores or pharmacies and would offer stamps and other services.
