Weekdays 3p-7p

Hopefully, this headline did not scare you too much… Christmas is next week and there is still so much to do.

This post is a friendly reminder that if you want to order online or ship things to loved ones, TODAY is the deadline to reach the destination by Christmas. If not, then you would have to pay a lot more to get those packages out with that overnight shipping. Good thing my wife handles all of the shipping, because if I couldn’t get the gifts out on time then they would be considered New Years gifts.

Since so many people are staying home with just their household for Christmas this year, all of the mail offices are overwhelmed and understaffed due to COVID-19. Just as a reminder, please be kind to everyone as this stressful year comes to an end.

Christmas Day shipping deadlines:

    • December 15: USPS Retail Ground Service
  • December 18: First-Class Mail Service
  • December 19: Priority Mail Service
  • December 23: Priority Mail Express Service
