Hattiesburg post office swamped with mail

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - This is a busy time for holiday shoppers and postal workers who are trying to process holiday cards and packages mailed for Christmas.

The week before Christmas is the busiest time of the year, say workers in Hattiesburg.

In the Hub City, about a 250,000 pieces of mail passed through the 40th Avenue post office location on Monday.

Postal officials said residents need to mail your cards, letters of packages as soon as possible to get them to their destinations by Christmas Day.

"To make sure it's there by Christmas, priority mail needs to be in the mail by mondMondayaid Postmaster Patrick Campbell. "If you're sending it anywhere else in the world, you may have to send express mail to get it there by Christmas."
