Alabama customers chose their preference from four options:

1. Keep the Post Office open, based on actual office workload. For example, hours would be reduced from 8 hours each weekday to 4 hours per weekday. Current Saturday hours will not change as a result of POStPlan and access to your delivery receptacles will not be impacted by POStPlan.

2. Conduct a discontinuance study for the office and offer roadside mailbox delivery. Retail and
delivery service would be provided through a rural carrier. Mail delivery points will be established
and customers can purchase most postal services through the carrier or other alternate access points.

3. Conduct a discontinuance study for the office and find a suitable alternative location operated by a contractor, usually at a local business. When businesses are found that meet the criteria, these
establishments are contracted through the U.S. Postal Service and offer stamps and flat rate products
with service hours generally more expansive than what the local Post Office will be able to offer.

4. Conduct a discontinuance study for the office and provide P.O. Box service via another nearby
Post Office and relocate P.O. Box delivery to that Post Office.
