Hickory mail processing center workers have one question in mind for their federal bosses â€” how can closing the Conover facility be a good decision?
"How's it going to work?" asked Katie Racine, postal clerk at the processing center.
Racine said if the U.S. Postal Service closes the processing center located in Conover and moves everything to Greensboro operations, its impossible to have mail delivered on time.
"How is it going to get back in the same amount of time (as it is now)," Racine said. "It's physically impossible, to our beliefs."
Ethan Allen employees Matt Jenkins and Brock Arrowood arrived in Tuscaloosa, Ala., last week with a trailer packed with supplies bought by their fellow employees at the Maiden furniture plant.
The scene they discovered was hard to believe.
"It looked like a bomb had gone off. There was nothing but rubble," Jenkins said. "There were entire areas that were just gone. There was nothing there, but trash, and then right across the road, everything was still intact."
