is out live at the post office in medford. mari, if i'm sending out a gift this year, how long can i procrastinate and still get that gift there on time? i'm live here at the post office before it opens and people start to line up here this morning. if you're planning to ship out a package today, you are still in time to making sure those gifts get there by christmas. according to the post office, it depends what kind of shipping you use if your package will get there on time. to ship internationaly by priority mail, that deadline has already passed. to ship internatiolaly by priority mail express, you need to ship it by the end of this week, december 15-th. if you are just shipping something within the states, it needs to ge out by december 2oth-next thursday. "let's say before noon, if you start coming in the afternoon, the lines do get long, i've been coming here for a long time, but i expect that. i give it a half an hour for sure because there can be long lines." it's all about giving yourself enough time and expecting longer lines than usual. you will need to plan some extra time, it's probably not going to be a fast process. this time of year is already stressful enough with trying to buy gifts, and planning any holiday parties and hosting family.
