Dear Editor Greenwich Sentinel,
As the Postmaster for Greenwich, CT, I want to assure you that the United States Postal Service is ready to deliver for the upcoming holiday season. My dedicated team and I have worked to ensure we are prepared to handle the expected surge in package and mail volume that occurs in December.
As you and your family prepare for the holidays, it’s always advisable to send your holiday mail and packages well in advance to ensure they reach their destinations on time, but we understand that sometimes cards or packages are sent last minute.
Here are the key recommended holiday shipping and mailing dates for expected delivery within the U.S. by Dec. 25:
• Dec. 16: USPS Ground Advantage (5-day); First Class Mail (5-Day)
• Dec. 20: Priority Mail (3-Day); USPS Ground Advantage (2-Day); First-Class Mail (2-Day); and Priority Mail Express (2-Day)
• Dec. 21: Priority Mail Express (1-Day); and Priority Mail (2-Day)

We are grateful for your trust in the United States Postal Service this holiday season. With no holiday surcharges, your postal team at the Greenwich Post Office is ready to be the most affordable and reliable way to ship and mail this year.
