USPS Looking at Closing Maine Processing Plant 

The U.S. Postal Service might wind up closing its mail processing plant in Hampden.The USPS has announced plans to conduct a study to see if the Hampden operation should be consolidated into the processing and distribution center in Scarborough.The study is expected to wind up early next year.If the study makes a case for consolidation, the postal service would then hold a public meeting to get public feedback and explain any potential changes.The postal service lost $8.5 billion dollars last year and is on target to lose even more than that this year.
