The United States Postal Service

The United States Postal Service, a public corporation, offers a reliable (and by world standards, inexpensive) system of mail delivery to any address in the United States. Post Offices are widely available throughout the country with at least one for each zip code. All post offices accept domestic and international letters and parcels and offer three basic levels of service: surface, priority and express. The most up-to-date information about services and rates is found on www.usps.gov, the website for the United States Postal Service.

Usual Hours: Most post offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 p.m. with some locations open on Saturday from 8:30 am to 1:00 p.m. with full services. In addition some post offices have self service stations that are available after these hours. In many major cities, the main post office is open 24 hours a day, seven day a week.

Usual Services Provided: Most post offices provide postal mailboxes, self-service stations and distribution of tax forms and passport applications in addition to the standard domestic and international services.
