The new hours will last until Christmas.
“As we count down to the holidays, we know how demanding the season can be as we rush to get everything done on time. Staying open later on the five Saturdays and Sundays before Christmas will help our customers’ check holiday mailing off their to-do list,” said Denver Postmaster Lora McLucas.
The Postal Service expects to deliver more than 800 million packages and nearly 12 billion pieces of mail between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.
Officials remind customers they can purchase Priority Mail package supplies at usps.com and have them picked up from their home for free the next day.
