Need to ship Christmas gifts? You have a few days left
There are a few days left for residents to mail gifts to loved ones so that the packages arrive before Christmas.

Packages that weigh more than 13 ounces must be shipped by priority mail. Deadline for priority mail is Saturday. Packages arrive within 2-3 days and come with $50 insurance and tracking.
For priority mail express, packages must be shipped by Dec. 23. Express mail is overnight service.
