Shipping to mom in time for Mother's Day

With Mother's Day just around the corner, residents may want know that Tuesday is the last day for some shipments to make it to mom

STAMFORD - With Mother's Day just around the corner, residents may want know that Tuesday is the last day for some shipments to make it to mom in time for the holiday.

FedEx representatives say the Mother's Day holiday is one of their busiest times for sending gifts. Tuesday is the last day to ship by ground service, which is the most economical method. However, residents can opt for the more expensive express shipping until Friday.

The U.S. Postal Service also has options. It says residents can ship express mail until Thursday. But to be economical and send by priority mail, they recommend doing that by Wednesday.
