In a need for a leaner post office, four local branches are slated to close, they are:

Bridgeport–Nobel Station and Barnum Station.

Stamford–Glenbrook and West Avenue Stations

New Haven–Trolly Square, Kilby, Baybrook, Westivlle Stations and the Mout Carmel Carrier Annex.

Across Connecticut about 400 post offices, and about  150 small branches are being postmarked for closing.  The Postal Service lost $2.8 billion last year and expect the same this year which is why the cuts are being proposed.
