CT post offices fully staffed for holiday rush

Southwestern Connecticut post offices, along with post offices around the country, are fully staffed Monday for the holiday rush.

Postal officials say the week before Christmas is typically the busiest time of the year. They say cards mailed by Thursday should arrive in time for Christmas. However, presents should be mailed Monday, or senders may have to pay extra fees for a Christmas arrival.

Postal officials urge residents to clear snow and ice from their walkways to allow workers to get to the mailbox quicker.For an interview with the Norwalk postmaster about the holiday rush, go to Channel 612 on your iO digital cable box and select iO Extra.
