USPS officials say the busiest mailing day of the season is Monday, December 16. So, the Postal Service is giving customers a chance to beat the rush.
Four Rochester area Post Offices will be open on Sunday to give residents a chance to get their holiday shipments out early. The open locations are as follows:
Post office staff want to remind you to keep track of all the deadlines so your letters, cards and packages make it in time for the holidays.
"If you're sending out your holiday cards you want to get them in the mail by Friday the 20th. If you're sending out packages you can send them through priority mail by Saturday the 21st, and we do have our premiere product, priority express mail, you can put things in the mail by Monday the 23rd. It's a premium product, so it comes at a premium price, so generally the longer you wait, the less your options, and it might cost you a little more,” said Karen Mazurkiewicz, spokesperson for the U.S. Postal Service.
Nationwide, the Postal Service expects to process about 607-million letters, cards and packages on Monday.
