About USPS

The United States Postal Service, commonly known as USPS, is a postal service in the US. It was first created in 1775 by Benjamin Franklin. He was appointed as the first postmaster general. From Franklin’s operation, the Post Office was established in 1792, and it eventually became the US Postal Service in 1971. Today, USPS employs over 617,000 people and operates the largest civilian vehicle fleet in the world. If you need to mail something or receive mail, and wonder what time does USPS open and what time does USPS close, you’ve come to the right place. Read about USPS hours below.




USPS HOURS

USPS hours run from early morning to afternoon or evening. The earlier hours during the week aren’t the most convenient for those on a fixed work schedule, but you can mail something during your lunch break or on a Saturday. One downside with the mail service is that letters or other documents can be slow in reaching your location. Also, packages sometimes get lost in the mail. Fortunately, if you have a bigger parcel you want to send or receive, you can track it online by obtaining a tracking number for it. (This is available for Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express only. Hopefully, this feature could be available for letters, too, in the future.)
