Holiday hours

USPS releases schedules for Post Offices, blue boxes

Some Post Offices will have special hours for the holidays.

The Postal Service has announced holiday plans for Post Offices and blue collection boxes.

Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve: This year, Dec. 24 and Dec. 31 both fall on a Sunday, when normal closures apply. There are currently no plans for limited hours on Saturday, Dec. 23, or Saturday, Dec. 30.

There are no plans for early blue box collection times on Dec. 23 or Dec. 30.

Customers who are unable to mail items before the scheduled collection box pickup times on Dec. 23 should use the online Postal Locator tool to find Post Offices that may be open late.

Christmas Day and New Year’s Day: Post Offices will be closed on Monday, Dec. 25, and Monday, Jan. 1. Blue collection boxes will not be serviced these days and there are no residential or business deliveries — except for Priority Mail Express.

Post Offices will be open for business and regular mail delivery resumes on Tuesday, Dec. 26, and Tuesday, Jan. 2.

Blue collection boxes are not serviced on Sundays of federal holidays.
