Local post offices are processing more and more packages as Christmas Day approaches.
The Sturgeon Bay Post Office says parcel volume started increasing the weekend after Thanksgiving and is still on the rise. Postmaster Don Erdmann says package drop-offs and deliveries are already ahead of 2017.
In order to get holiday packages to their destinations in time for Christmas, Erdmann says First Class and Priority Mail are your best bets within the U.S. Those have to be sent out by December 20th. For packages bound for military installations, Priority Mail Express is the best option and need to be postmarked by December 16th.
