Thursday, December 20, 2012 • Posted December 21, 2012

Post Offices nationwide will be open Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24 and New Year’s Eve, Monday, December 31. Most Post Offices will shorten retail lobby hours and close at noon on these days. Regular mail delivery will be unaffected by the change.

Revised hours will be posted at each Post Office and commercial customers are asked to check with their Bulk mail Entry Units for specific information regarding holiday hours of operation.

Blue collections boxes having final collection times before 12 p.m. will not be affected by these changes. However, collection boxes with final collection times scheduled after that may be collected early. Therefore, mail should be deposited into these mailboxes by 12 p.m. for early pick-up on December 24 and December 31. Customers requiring postal services later on those days are encouraged to contact their local Post Office. Customers also may call 1-800-ASK-USPS for additional information or visit the USPS website: to find other nearby Post Offices or local businesses that offer postal products and services.

Post Offices will be closed December 25 and January 1. Express Mail only will be delivered on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. All Post Offices will be open and regular mail delivery will resume December 26 and January 2.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
