The quaint Lake George post office is one of 88 Minnesota Postal Services outlets targeted to close or be converted to a "village outlet."


The Postal Services has been looking at operations of thousands of 3,500 outlets nationally and Tuesday announced numerous closures.

It is a blow to a small community experiencing a revival and couldn't be timed worse. The town's annual Blueberry Festival starts Friday.
