Postal deadlines nearing for Christmas delivery

Posted: Updated:

The countdown to Christmas is making things busy at post offices across KOTA Territory.

There are only nine shipping days before Christmas; and people are scrambling to make sure everything is sent in time.

Staff members at the Gering Post Office say they're overwhelmed with the sheer volume of letters and packages being shipped.

The deadline for guaranteed delivery of parcel post mail is Friday. Clerk Jan Marker says other deadlines are fast approaching as well.

"We don't want to wait too long," explains Marker, "And they need to make sure their packages are wrapped very securely with good tape and that they're cushioned well."

The post office does offer expedited shipping, but the costs jump significantly.
