Postmaster's Tips for Holiday Season
By George Buonocore
Every year, many customers wait for the last minute to mail their packages at Christmas and they just can’t make it to their destination on time, this year in the Rockaways we are opening early a couple of days and closing later on the two Saturdays before Christmas so that you have plenty of time to mail your packages and letters to ensure a timely delivery.
Some of the our newer services this season consist of Delivery Confirmation, whereas you the customer can track a package and confirm delivery of it via phone or internet. There is also our very reliable Express Mail service, which guarantees overnight delivery to most places in the country.
As a last minute stocking stuffer, we carry first class phone cards, which are not only good in the USA, but can be used outside of the country as well. Another tip is to have your packages ready, labeled and taped closed. It will help the transaction move along quickly. This year the managers will be in the lobbies from time to time to help assist customers and keep the line flowing, and to answer any questions and to help with any problems. Thank you and have a safe and happy holiday.
