Post office processes mail, delivers parcels on Sundays for holiday

 

CLEVELAND — The U.S. Postal Service has announced it will cancel and process mail in Cleveland and deliver parcels throughout Northern Ohio Dec. 15. The service also was available Dec. 8.

“We are asking our customers to please deposit their mail in a blue mail box or at a Post Office as early as possible this holiday season,” said Northern Ohio District Manager Melvin Anderson. “Since we are expecting a higher than normal mail volume on Mondays during the holidays, we will be cancelling and processing mail on these two Sundays. Normally, we do not cancel and process mail on Sundays, but we are expecting our local mail volume to increase from about 1 millions pieces on an average day to about 3 million pieces on Dec. 16.”

The Postal Service also encourages customers to mail early in the morning during the holiday season.

“Getting your mail to us early in the day will speed the processing and delivery of your holiday mail,” said Anderson.

In addition, letter carriers will be out delivering parcels in many locations on both Sundays.

“We appreciate our customers and are committed to providing the best possible mail and package delivery service available,” said Anderson.
