ABILENE, Texas -

The United States Postal Service could stop Saturday mail delivery, but the Abilene Processing Centers fate is still unknown.

A USPS spokesperson said the mail processing center in Abilene, which was scheduled to close this year, is still operating.

Originally on the chopping block for 2013, the postal service said no changes have been announced at this time.

The Abilene center handles overnight shipping to San Angelo and two-day shipping to Fort Worth and Lubbock.

The processing center employs about 150 workers.
