The Great Bend Post Office at 2100 16th St. will extend its retail window hours to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 16, Postmaster Travis Trendel said. Normally the Post Office closes at noon on Saturdays. Regular hours during the week at 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. It is closed on Sundays.
“As we count down to the holidays, we know how demanding the season can be as we rush to get everything done on time,” Trendel said. “Extending our Saturday retail hours will help our customers check holiday mailing off their to-do list.”
USPS employees will be available to help customers ensure their holiday packages are packed, tracked and delivered with ease. In addition to holiday Forever Stamps, Post Offices offer Priority Mail supplies and other packing items to provide customers with added convenience.
These include bubble mailers, shipping boxes, bubble wrap and packaging tape. Also available are a selection of greeting cards and gift cards.
The U.S. Postal Service recommends the following Christmas mailing and shipping deadlines:
• Dec. 16 – APO/FPO/DP0 Priority Mail Express
• Dec. 19 – First Class Mail
• Dec. 20 – Priority Mail
• Dec. 22 – Priority Mail Express
