In addition, mail should be deposited into blue collection mailboxes by noon for early pick-up on Dec. 24. Customers requiring postal services later that day are encouraged to contact their local postmaster.
Post offices will be closed on Christmas Day, Friday, Dec. 25. Sunday/Holiday Express Mail only will be delivered on Dec. 25. All Post Offices will be open and regular mail delivery will resume on Saturday, Dec. 26.
