Postal Service Announces Modified Collections On Several Upcoming Days

Postal officials announced modified mail collection for December 24, 26, 31 and January 2. Mail collection from official postal collection boxes and other postal locations will be at the time posted on the collection box or at noon, whichever is earlier on those dates. This means customers should deposit outgoing mail prior to noon or the posted collection time, if it's earlier.

Many postal retail windows will be open regular hours. Because some local closing times could vary, it's recommended customers check with their local post office for the exact closing time and for additional information regarding retail services on December 24, 26, 31 and January 2. Post offices that are closing early will post a notice in the lobby with the location of the nearest post office open regular hours. Mail delivery will not be affected by this change.

The postal service will deliver Express Mail on Christmas Day, December 25 and New Year's Day, January 1, in most major metropolitan cities. Customers are advised to check with their post office for next-day delivery locations. Customers can go online at www.usps.com for quick, easy and convenient service.
