During the Columbus Day Holiday
Become an Explorer and Discover New Worlds at USPS.com
City, ST — Monday, October 13th is Columbus Day, a holiday for federal agencies like the U.S. Postal Service, so Post Offices will be closed and there won’t be mail delivery.
But that doesn’t mean we aren’t available for our customers. With a little exploring, you can find many postal services right on our website at www.usps.com.
If you’re a customer looking for stamps, you can order them online, buy them at many local stores and banks, or visit a Self Service Kiosk even when the Post Office is closed. If you need to do more than buy stamps, visit our website to find approved postal shippers who offer our most popular services at Postal Locator tab under QUICK TOOLS.
The postal locator tool also steers you to postal lobbies that offer 24-hours Self Service Kiosks. You can perform a number of postal transactions at the kiosks including weighing and shipping packages, buying postage, mailing letters, looking up ZIP Codes and accessing other mailing information. Special services like certified mail and insurance are also available. Regionally, those locations include:
· CAPITAL REGION: Albany General Mail Facility, Niskayuna (Schenectady), Clifton Park and Latham Post Offices, Stuyvesant Plaza (Albany)
· HIGH PEAKS/NORTHERN NEW YORK: Glens Falls, Plattsburgh, Watertown Main Post Offices
· CENTRAL NEW YORK: Syracuse General Mail Facility (Taft Road), Rome Post Office
· SOUTHERN TIER: Vestal Post Office
Christopher Columbus once said, “You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” We like to say, you’ll never know what we have to offer outside of our lobbies if you don’t explore the many options we offer online. Go to www.usps.com and see what new discoveries you may find.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
