EAST LANSING, MI (WLNS) – If you have Christmas packages to mail and you want them to be firmly planted under someone’s Christmas tree, you better head to the post office.
It’s the last day at the United States Post Office you can overnight your package to make sure it’s on time for Christmas.
Sabrina Todd, spokeswoman for the U.S. Post Office in East Lansing wants to remind you to make sure anything you need to mail is addressed correctly.
If you want your package to arrive by Christmas, you’ll have to use Priority Mail, which is going to cost a little more than usual.
“We are expecting steady crowds to not only walk through these doors but all of our Post Offices today as we said today is the last day to get their packages there by Christmas,” said Sabrina Todd, Communication spokeswoman.
“Usually on Average we see about 850 people per day, but for the past week it has been about five thousand people,” said James Trites, officer in charge.
The post office is open Tuesday until 7 p.m. and on Christmas Eve until 3 p.m. If you wait until Christmas Eve, packages will not arrive on time for Christmas.
