Post Office Experiences Busiest Mailing Day of the Year

Posted:

Monday is expected to be the busiest day of the year for the Post Office.

But you still have a little time to mail off those holiday packages and have them arrive by Christmas Day.

Postal workers nationwide are expecting over one billion pieces of mail that's more than three times the amount for a normal day.

To help make sure you get your packages mailed out in time, the post office has extended their hours through December 22.

  • Downtown Station 411 Avenue L - 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. M-F 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Sat.
  • Freedom Station 5001 Ave L - 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Sat.
  • Monterey Station 5014 Gary 8:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m. M-F 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Sat.
  • Singer Station 4901 S. Loop 289 8:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. M-F 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Sat.
  • Sunset Station 2121 Frankford 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Sat.

"If you aren't available to get to the Postal Service by 7:00 p.m. Monday here at Singer Station we have our automated postal center available 24 hours a day in our retail lobby. You can come in, mail your packages, or buy stamps there if you need to," says Denise Warner, with the United States Postal Service.

Expect to wait in a line if you are mailing packages this week, but the Postal Service says you can shorten your wait time if you have your package ready to mail and your address label completed.

The Postal Service says if you want to have your mail arrive by Christmas it should be sent no later than Thursday.
