Arkansas post office with 33 patrons to stay open

SEDGWICK, Ark. (AP) - A tiny Arkansas town has learned it can keep its post office.

KAIT-TV reports ( ) the United States Postal Service told residents of Sedgwick on Tuesday night that the town's post office will continue to operate with reduced hours. The town of about 150 people is located 15 miles northwest of Jonesboro.

The office's 33 customers were surveyed a month ago about the fate of the post office. Only 10 of the residents responded. Those who did overwhelmingly wanted to keep it operational.

The post office is now set to open two-and-a-half hours later during the week. The changes will take effect in January.
