Brockton residents feel they're being held hostage by the U. S. Postal Service.
The town's post office closed its doors at 199 Mine St. last October, after the post office was evicted by the building's owner. Since then, Brockton residents are being forced to go to Mary D to retrieve their mail, where they must pay $40 for a post office box.
"And we don't even get a key for that $40," said one resident. "We have to go to the counter to ask for it."
Classified as "suspended," the town's post office appears to be destined for permanent closure.
