Today marks last day to send holiday packages by parcel post

STAMFORD - Today marks the last day to send holiday packages by parcel post in order to ensure that they arrive by Christmas.

Many Stamford residents say they're in a rush to get last-minute packages and cards to the post office, but there is still some time if they are willing to forgo ground service and pay a little more.

The deadline for first-class mail is Monday and the priority-shipping deadline is Tuesday. For late shoppers, the deadline for express mail is next Wednesday.
