WASHINGTON — Post Offices nationwide will be closed Christmas Day, Dec. 25, and New Year’s Day, Jan. 1, 2019.

All post offices will be open and regular mail delivery will resume after the holidays on Dec. 26 and Jan. 2. Some post offices may have extended hours leading up to the holidays, and limited hours on Christmas Eve, Monday, Dec. 24.

On New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, post offices will be open during regular business hours. USPS officials said customers should always check with their local post offices for hours of operation.

Blue collection boxes with final collection times before noon will not be affected by early closing on Dec. 24. If a box has a final collection time after noon, its mail may be picked up earlier.

For mail pickup on Dec. 24, items should be placed into blue collection boxes by noon regardless of the final collection times posted on the box. Blue collection boxes are not serviced on Sundays.

Customers who have items to mail after the scheduled pick-up times on Dec. 24 should visit tools.usps.com to find local post offices which may be open late.
