Time is running out to ship those Christmas gifts

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The United States Postal Service wants to get the word out that you have until the close of the business day on Saturday to get any Priority Mail Express packages delivered by Monday, Christmas Day.

To get your gifts in the mail, just bring your package to the post office, and the clerks there can assist you to get your package on its way to its Christmas destination.

"Tomorrow being the 22nd and Saturday being the 23rd, to make sure we get it there on the 25th, Express Mail will be the best way to get it there guaranteed," said Joe Dickens, officer in charge at USPS.

The post office on 40th Ave. in Hattiesburg will be closing at 2 p.m. on Saturday and is open until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

If online shopping is your thing, you still need to get those orders in soon. If you want a gift from Amazon to reach its destination before Christmas Day, you'll need to place your order by Friday. Amazon will also have same-day delivery available Sunday in select areas.
