Business Buzz: Postal employees in Craig voluntarily extend hours, ask for assistance to get Christmas packages delivered
December 18, 2018
Santa's biggest helpers are asking for community support as they work to deliver Christmas gifts.
"For the next several weeks, we at the Post Office ask you kindly to please keep your driveways, sidewalks, and curbside mailboxes clear and to turn on your porch lights/flood lights when the sun starts setting," said Tiffany Schulze, United States Post Office supervisor.
Bright lights and clear house numbers are helpful to ensure packages are delivered.
"If you see your parcels scanned late at night as 'business closed' or 'no access,' chances are, it was one of us who couldn't see your house in the dark and don't know the routes. It will go back out the following day," Schulze said.
Craig postal staff have volunteered to extend their hours for package pickup on Sunday and on Christmas Day.
"One of the awesome clerks or myself will be at the Craig post office from 10 a.m. to noon every Sunday until Christmas for package pickup. I will also be there from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Christmas Day for package pickup," Schulze said. "We just want to make sure you all receive as many of your gifts as possible for the Christmas season."

To pick up a package, recipients will need to take a pink pickup slip or identification with his or her name on it inside the Post Office to the double-dutch door beside the lobby near the PO boxes, and ring the bell. Someone will come to the door to help.
"Our entire USPS team thanks you for your continued kindness and patience during this time of year, and we are all wishing you all a very merry Christmas," Schulze said.
