The Arcade Post Office at 5th and Spring is one of five the Postal Service is studying Downtown for potential closure.

The fate of five Downtown post offices will be up for discussion in a pair of meetings this week, part of a "retail optimization" effort by the United States Postal Service.

Slated for potential closure are the Bunker Hill Post Office (350 S. Grand), the ARCO Plaza Post Office (505 S. Flower), the Arcade Post Office (506 S. Spring), the Federal Finance Station (300 N. Los Angeles) and the Market Station (1122 E. 7th).

The five are among 3,700 locations that the Postal Service in July said it was studying nationwide.

A meeting to discuss the Bunker Hill and ARCO Plaza locations—the USPS apparently has not noticed that the complex is now City National Plaza—will be held on Thursday, September 29, from noon to 2pm at 350 S. Grand.

The other three stations will be discussed on Friday, September 30, from noon to 2pm at the Terminal Annex Post Office, next to Union Station (900 N. Alameda).
