Holiday Kickoff Event


This holiday season we want to create awareness and promote the value and convenience of using our shipping services online. Under the guidance of Corporate Commu­nications, holiday promotional events will be conducted on the same day, Tuesday, December 2, in the major media markets to kick off the holiday mailing season.

Postmasters are expected to participate as the lead postal representative to the public for the event in their city. Corporate Communications field staff will plan and pro­mote the kickoff event, with the assistance of Marketing and Consumer Affairs. The primary targets for events are the top media markets, but promotional events can be held in any city or town.

While the Friday after Thanksgiving is the busiest retail shopping day, known as “Black Friday,” the following Mon­day has become known as “Cyber Monday,” the busiest shopping day on the Internet. After shoppers have spent the day after Thanksgiving crowding the malls, the follow­ing Monday they are crowding the Internet pipelines. We want to tap into that online mentality to call attention to the values and convenience of our shipping services online at USPS.COM®. The goal is to make the net-savvy public aware that they can meet all of their shipping needs online on our website, and that we offer the best prices as well.
