WASHINGTION, D.C. (www.incnow.tv) --- The U.S. Postal Service will no longer deliver mail on Saturdays beginning in August.

A formal announcement is expected later today, according to ABCNews.

Although mail is not being delivered to individuals on Saturdays, mail will continue to be delivered to post office boxes. Saturday post office hours are expected to remain unchanged.
