NORTHPORT - Residents in Northport are rallying to save their local post office from closing.

The United States Postal Service wants to close the post office in the village and merge it with the post office in East Northport.

Residents say that closing the Northport post office will make their lives more difficult, since Northport is a fairly secluded village.

The postal service says that the decision is necessary to save much-needed cash.

Village officials say they hope to meet with postal officials before the decision is made.
