Postal service extended hours

The U.S. Postal Service is prepared for the holiday season and will offer extended retail hours at many locations.  Whether customers need to ship it quickly or have plenty of time, the Postal Service has an option that will make shipping convenient and affordable.

 

Extended Retail Hours: Postal facilities throughout Austin, and surrounding areas, are either opening early and/or extending their hours leading up to Christmas Day. These designated offices will provide full retail services, including stamp sales and package acceptance.  Extended hours will begin on December 8 and run through December 22; additionally, the locations listed below will have extended hours on Saturdays and Sundays where noted. In addition, several Post Offices not listed already offer retail hours on Saturdays and after 5 p.m. Customers can check www.usps.com/FindLocations and/or call 1.800.ASK.USPS for hours at specific Post Offices.
