CHICAGO — This week is the busiest mailing and delivery week of the Holiday season. The U.S. Postal Service expects to process and deliver nearly 2.5 billion pieces of mail, including packages, this week alone. Overall, the Postal Service anticipates delivering 800 million packages between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.
But, time is running out though to have items reach their destination by December 25. If customers have that last minute item to send, there is Priority Mail Express which should be mailed no later than Monday, December 23.
The following Chicago postal stations are open on Sunday:
* Cardiss Collins, 433 W. Harrison St. 10 am to 9 pm.
Fort Dearborn Station, 540 N. Dearborn St. 10 am to 2 pm
Graceland Postal Store, 3024 N. Ashland Ave. 11 am to 2 pm
* Cardiss Collins is open until 11:59 pm Mon-Fri and to 11 pm on Saturday.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
