QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -- The Quincy Mail Processing and Distribution Center will close early next year, but your mail will be going elsewhere much sooner.
Later this month, mail from the prefix 623 zip code will sent to Springfield, Illinois for sorting.
And starting in February, mail coming from the 634 and 635 zip code prefixes will be sent to Columbia, Missouri.
Valerie Welsch, a regional spokesman for the USPS, says that even though the mail will be traveling further, there will still be overnight delivery to those zip codes.
Welsch says the Quincy facility's 60 employees have been notified of the adjustments. She did not know how many of the employees had accepted jobs elsewhere in the region.
Welsch says currently, there are no plans to sell the building after the mail processing facility closes Feb. 2013.
