Whether you're trying to jump start intentions for the new year, like your resolution to stop procrastinating, or sending out belated holiday presents to relatives who will definitely understand, getting Post Office errands complete is essential. In between whipping up meals to bring you good luck in 2023 and hunting down original captions for that annual sparkler ‘Gram, there’s still time to make it to the Post Office.
The Post Office provides more than mail. You can purchase money orders, postage, packing supplies, and memorabilia. Or apply for or renew your passport. No matter the errand, we know it’s important to cross it off. Here is everything you should know about the United States Post Office's New Year's Eve and New Year's Day holiday closures and hours. Because not every store has a luxurious return policy that will wait until after holiday fun.
Is the Post Office open on New Year's Eve?
Post Office locations are open nationwide on New Year’s Eve, Saturday, December 31. Good news if you’re still waiting on the final accessory from an online order to complete your NYE outfit — USPS delivers mail as usual on New Year’s Eve. Keep in mind that Saturday hours vary at the post office, so check the store locator before you head out.
Is the Post Office open on New Year's Day 2023?
New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday in 2023, so you won’t have any luck sending or receiving mail. The following Monday is a federal holiday, so the post office will also be closed on January 2. USPS will not pick up from collection boxes, either.
What if I need something else from the Post Office?
Brick-and-mortar Post Office locations are closed on New Year’s Day, but the internet has your back. You can find other services online 24/7 using your USPS.com account, including ordering stamps, printing shipping labels, ordering boxes and other mail supplies, and requesting package pickups.
Are any mail delivery services open on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day?
Fed Ex: Fed Ex will operate under modified schedules on New Year's Eve and will be closed on New Year's Day. They will reopen on January 2 with modified services. Check the location near you before you head out.
UPS: UPS store locations will be open on New Year's Eve, but it's a good idea to contact your local store to see if it has modified business hours. UPS is closed on New Year’s Day and open on January 2 with a modified schedule. Find more details on shipping services when you view UPS's holiday schedule.
Amazon: Sorry if you were looking forward to that Amazon TikTok find, it will not be delivering packages on New Year’s Day.
