Thursday Last Day To Ship First-Class, Priority Through USPS
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – On a day anticipated to be the busiest at the US Postal Service, the location at 2100 South in Salt Lake City was surprisingly calm.
It was the final day to send out first-class and priority packages in order for them to arrive by Christmas. However, procrastinators will have one more chance with express mail.
“If customers don’t send out their first-class and priority packages today, they still have the opportunity to use our express mail services and should still be able to get there by Christmas,” said Bill Gridley with the USPS.
Marc Navez is all too familiar with shipping out gifts. He does it every year for friends and family.
He expected a much busier post office.
“I was expecting a line out the door, but they’ve got a lot of people here working, and I got in pretty quick,” Navez said. “I was really excited I wasn’t here for two hours in line.”
Overall it’s been a busy few weeks for USPS workers, and an anticipated 3 billion deliveries next week will have them working just as hard.
Across the Wasatch front, USPS reports it receives 450,000 pieces of mail each day in December compared to 100,000 during other months.
