CHARLOTTE, NC — The Postal Service reminds customers that although Post Offices will be closed for retail transactions on Monday, Oct. 14, to observe Columbus Day, postal services are still available – even on a holiday. There will be no residential or business deliveries.
Although there will be no regular mail service on Columbus Day, Priority Mail Express is delivered 365 days a year and will be delivered on Columbus Day, with normal delivery and collection schedules resuming Tuesday, Oct. 15.
As many Americans observe Columbus Day and enjoy the extended holiday weekend, the Postal Service is hard at work and has a convenient feature to help consumers keep track of their mail: Informed Delivery.
Whether consumers are in town or traveling for the holiday, Informed Delivery lets residential consumers see what is arriving in their mailboxes by sending them digital previews of their incoming envelopes and postcards. These images can be viewed via email notifications, or accessed through an online dashboard at informeddelivery.usps.com — perfect for travelers to check for important letters that are arriving over the holiday weekend.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
