Postal workers promote Web site, warn of holiday lines

STAMFORD - Postal officials in Stamford are encouraging people to use the service's Web site to eliminate some of the hassles involved with mailing holiday presents.

Decked out in robes and fuzzy slippers, Lisa Landone and her postal service coworkers, warned there will be cutbacks on holiday staffing and lines could get long at the office this holiday season. Using the Web site, they say, can be a quicker and easier alternative to waiting in line.

"We are in our pajamas, it's okay - you can do everything at home, even in the comfort of your pajamas, right from our award-winning Web site," says Landone. "We want our regular consumers to know that they don't have to come to the post office and wait in line. They can go right onto our Web site, print postage from their computer and order us to pick it up the next day."
