Some post offices ask for cash-only transactions due to power outages
QUAD CITIES, (KWQC) - While many retail outlets are asking for payment through credit or debit cards to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the U.S Postal Service is now asking for cash-only payment due to power outages caused by the Monday’s severe storms.
According to a news release, many postal facilities in Iowa and Illinois are limiting customer payment methods for things like stamps and postage.
The postal service says those locations are experiencing phone outages and internet connectivity issues needed to process credit card transactions.
Mail delivery has resumed as normal to most neighborhoods, but the postal service asks customers to clear storm debris from around mailboxes.
The following retail locations in our area will be accepting cash-only payments until power is fully restored.
