QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) – Many Quincy residents noticed their mail was delivered much later than normal on Tuesday, but U.S. Postal Service Officials say that won’t continue.
United States Postal Service spokesperson Valerie Welsch said some residents did receive deliveries as late as 8 p.m. Tuesday night, but only because it was the day after a holiday.
Mail carrier Tina Philllips said the late deliveries were not just because of the holiday, and she said it’s been a trend for a while now.
Phillips said since Quincy’s distribution center closed earlier this year, it has gotten the mail later and carriers have had to start their routes later.
