The Post Office understands the holidays are a busy time, that’s why Post Offices around Connecticut Valley are extending the hours customers have to prepare for them.
This holiday season, the Postal Service is giving customers a gift money can’t buy – more time to prepare.
Throughout Connecticut, the Postal Service is extending hours beyond the usual times exclusively for retail convenience. Depending on the location, customers will get an extra 3-5 extra hours for the holidays.
For the next three Saturdays in a row – Dec. 7, 14 and 21 – these locations will be extending retail lobby hours until 5 p.m.
- Bishops Corner
- Bridgeport / Bayview
- New Britain
- West Hartford
“We know this is the busiest time of year for some of our customers,” said District Manager Kevin Clark. “We wanted to relieve some of the stress of the holiday by adding some bonus hours for them.”
Can’t make it to the Post Office for any of these hours? Consumers don’t have to leave their homes to ship their packages. Simply visit USPS.com to schedule a pickup. The Postal Service anticipates Dec. 16 will be the busiest day online with more than 8.5 million consumers predicted to visit USPS.com for help shipping that special holiday gift.
