-What are the post office hours?
One of the most common questions we get here at the post office is “What are the post office hours?” The answer to this question can vary slightly depending on your location, but we can give you a general idea of when you can expect your local post office to be open.
The majority of post offices in the United States are open from Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. There are some post offices that have extended hours and are open until 6:00 pm or even 7:00 pm. Saturday hours are usually from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, although some post offices are now closed on Saturdays. Sundays are always closed.
If you need to mail a package or letter outside of normal business hours, you can use one of the postal service’s many 24-hour self-service kiosks. These kiosks are located in post offices, supermarkets, and even some gas stations. You can use these kiosks to buy stamps, weigh packages, and even ship items.
Keep in mind that the hours for post office lobby services (like purchasing stamps and mailing packages) may be different than the hours for postal retail services (like sending money orders and renting PO boxes). It’s always a good idea to call your local post office or check their website before visiting to make sure you know what services are available and when.
