Grand Junction, CO — Shipping holiday gifts just got more convenient. The Grand Junction Post Office, the Montrose Post Office and the Fruita Post Office will offer extended Saturday retail hours from now through Christmas (Dec. 7, Dec. 14 and Dec. 21).
“It’s all about customer convenience.” said Grand Junction Customer Service Supervisor Chris Buzzell. “As we count down to the holidays, we know how demanding the season can be as we rush to get everything done on time. Staying open later on the remaining Saturdays before Christmas will help our customers’ check holiday mailing off their to-do list.”
