Post Office Day After Thanksgiving Prompts Confusion for Holiday Shippers

CORAL GABLES (LALATE) – Is the Post Office open on Thanksgiving? Is there mail after Thanksgiving? The annual confusion returns this Friday with holiday costumers perplexed if “Black Friday” means a closed or open Post Office. The Post Office is always opened on the day after Thanksgiving, and there is mail service.

Each year, the U.S. Post Office issues to news the holiday dates it will be closed over the next twelve months. In some cases, when a holiday fall on a peculiar day, the Post Office will follow federal guidelines when to close and when to remain open.

The day after thanksgiving is not that situation. Thanksgiving is always a Thursday and is always a federal holiday. The day after Thanksgiving, aka Black Friday, is never a federal holiday and is always a business-as-usual day for the Post Office.

But unlike malls, stores, and outlets, the Post Office won’t have special Black Friday hours. Each year the OPM (U.S. Office of Personnel Management) issues that year’s schedule for recognized Federal holidays. For now, there remains only one last holiday that the Post Office is closed this year: Christmas Day (December 26). Consumers should also remember that Saturday, January 1, 2012 New Year’s Day is a holiday as well, and the Post Office will be closed.

If you want mail to arrive by December 25, when should you send it? Every December, the Post Office provides guidelines as to when standard, express and first class mail must be shipped by in order to get the package there by Christmas. This year, however, they have improved the charts for consumers. They are distinguishing between zip codes, domestic vs international shipping, and even including import dates as well.
