Post authorities say 63 of Colorado's 390 post offices are on the list for possible closure. None are in Colorado Springs or Pueblo.

They say the reason for the move, a budget shortfall. Today they released a list of post offices slated to close. Under the plan roughly one in 10 retail outlets would shut down.

Last year the post office lost $8 billion while running more than 3,600 local offices, branches and stations.

Recently, business has declined at many of these locations That's blamed on a move away from the first-class stamp to the Internet. Also, the recession led to a decline in advertising mail.

Most of the offices targeted are in rural areas, but postal official say they are looking into alternatives, like putting offices in businesses, town halls or community centers.

Below is the complete list released by postal authorities.
