BUFFALO -- The U.S. Postal Service noted today that it will deliver packages seven days a week through Christmas day due to "double digit package volume growth."

Also, in high traffic areas, mail will be retrieved from blue collections boxes on Sundays as well, the postal service announced.

“The Postal Service is the shipper of choice for many Americans,” said Western NY District Manager James Lentz. “During the holidays, we’re raising the bar with additional transportation and Sunday delivery to provide excellent service and reliability that is second only to Santa.”

Customers can expect to see postal carriers delivering on Sunday in larger cities and towns throughout Western New York. Due to continued growth in e-commerce, the postal service is expecting double-digit percentage growth (10.5 percent) in its package business this holiday season. The agency will deliver 15.5 billion total pieces of mail from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day; packages will account for about 600 million of the total. Approximately 8 million packages will flow through the western New York area.

“This is truly our season at the Postal Service, it is crunch time,” said Lentz. “We have stepped up our game to ensure America that USPS can be counted on to deliver their cards, gifts and letters in time for the holidays.”

For expected delivery of holiday mail and packages by Christmas, the Postal Service recommends keeping the following mailing and shipping deadlines in mind:

  • Dec. 8 – Priority Mail Express International
  • Dec. 10 – APO/FPO First-Class Mail® Letters and Cards
  • Dec. 10 – APO/FPO Priority Mail®
  • Dec. 15 – Standard Post
  • Dec. 17 – APO/FPO Priority Mail Express™ Military Service
  • Dec. 19 – First-Class Mail and Global Express Guaranteed
  • Dec. 21 – Priority Mail
  • Dec. 23 – Priority Mail Express
