MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Milwaukee Post Office will be open Christmas Eve, Wednesday, Dec. 24, and New Year’s Eve, Wednesday, Dec. 31.

The Main Office Window, located at 345 W. St Paul Ave. and the Airport Mail Facility, located at 5500 S. Howell Ave. will close at 5:00 p.m. on these dates. All other Milwaukee Post Office retail lobby hours will close at noon on these dates. Regular mail delivery will be unaffected by the change.

Revised hours will be posted at Milwaukee Post Offices and commercial customers are asked to check with the business mail entry unit for specific information regarding holiday hours of operation.

Blue collection boxes having final collection times before 12 noon will not be affected by these changes. However, collection boxes with final collection times scheduled after that may be collected early. Therefore, mail should be deposited into these mailboxes by 12 noon for early pickup on Dec. 24 and
Dec. 31. Customers requiring postal services later on those days are encouraged to contact their local Post Office. Customers also may call 1.800.ASK.USPS for additional information.

The Milwaukee Post Office will be closed Dec. 25 and Jan. 1. Only Priority Mail Express will be delivered on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. All Post Offices will be open and regular mail delivery will resume Dec. 26 and Jan. 2.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
