CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The United States Postal Service's Remote Encoding Center closed its doors forever Thursday night.
Back in April, the postal service announced it was closing the center on Lee Street. 360 employees worked at the facility.
The employees read and identified handwritten addresses. The computerized system used to only be able to recognize 2-percent of those addresses; now it can read 95 percent.
Centers in Indiana and Arizona are also set to close.
