Post Office Offers Extended Weekend Hours for Holidays

A number of Bay Area post offices will add weekend hours for the holiday season starting this Saturday to accommodate the large number of customers mailing cards and packages.

Selected post offices will offer Saturday hours on Dec. 13 and 20, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on the two Sundays before Christmas, Dec. 14 and 21, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The U.S. Postal Service is seeing steep growth in its package business this holiday season and expects to handle around 450 to 470 million packages, a roughly 12 percent increase over the same period last year.
