But Most Closing at Noon

 

WASHINGTON, Dec. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- All Post Offices nationwide will be open Christmas Eve, Thursday, Dec. 24 and New Year's Eve, Thursday, Dec. 31, but most will shorten retail lobby hours and close at noon. Mail delivery for Dec. 24 and Dec. 31 is not affected by the change.

 

Revised hours will be posted at each Post Office and commercial customers are asked to check with their Bulk Mail Acceptance Unit for Dec. 24 and Dec. 31 hours of operation.

 

Customers may call 1-800-ASK-USPS for information about specific Post Offices. In addition, mail should be deposited into blue collection mailboxes before noon for early pick-up on Dec. 24 and Dec. 31. Customers requiring postal services later that day are encouraged to contact their local Postmaster.

 

Post Offices will be closed Friday, Dec. 25, and Friday, Jan. 1. Express Mail only will be delivered on Christmas Day and New Year's Day in most major metro areas. Post Offices will be open regular hours on Saturday, Dec. 26 and Jan. 2.
