Video: Rush of holiday packages means more work for postal workers, police

SALT LAKE CITY — The United States Postal Service spent Sunday delivering millions of packages, despite it being a day when the post office is typically closed.

“Convenience for our customers is the most important thing, so we’ve expanded our hours in December, said Scott Smith with the West Valley City branch of the United States Postal Service.

The U.S. Postal Service is now in the final push in terms of holiday deliveries. This year, they were open until 4 p.m. on Saturdays rather than their usual closing time of 2 p.m. They’ve also opened up eight different offices in the Salt Lake Valley for the final Sundays leading up to Christmas.
