Following a tweet from our friend and member Kimberly A.H., I got to read this fascinating article from Bloomberg Business all about SubTropolis. SubTropolis is a huge, and I mean huuuuuuuuuuge, underground industrial complex beneath Kansas prarie. It is also where your stamps come from if you order them online. The U.S.P.S. uses over a staggering 500,000 square feet of space in the facility to house and distribute stamps. I thought it was neat. Thanks for the tip, Kimberly!
P.S. Readers, Kimberly is also a member of her local U.S.P.S. Consumer Advisory Council and is currently doing an experiment in postcard arrival times versus that of letters and postcards sent with letter-rate postage. What I'm saying is, her blog is a good time. Check it out.
