USPS prepared for shorter ‘peak season’ for holiday deliveries

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Local stores are prepared for holiday shoppers as the main event, Black Friday, quickly approaches.

Mainly, shoppers wait until after Thanksgiving to begin gift shopping. For the United States Postal Service, the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is considered “peak season,” according to spokeswoman Susan Wright.

But this year, with a late Thanksgiving, “peak season” is six days shorter than last year.

“That’s six less days for customers to get their packages in the main stream and get them delivered in time for the holidays,” said Wright.
