BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - The U.S. Postal Service has reversed its decision to reduce window hours at two post offices in Beckley and Bluefield.

U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall says the Postal Service reduced the window hours at the East Beckley Post Office in mid-January. The agency also planned to reduce the window hours at the Bluefield Federal Street Post Office beginning last week.

Rahall says he contacted Postal Service officials after constituents informed him about the cuts. He says he learned that the Postal Service didn’t follow its full analysis and approval process.

The West Virginia Democrat says the Beckley post office’s window hours will return to their previous schedule Feb. 17. The Bluefield post office’s window hours won’t be reduced.
