CLEVELAND, Ohio -- With the holiday rush in full swing, the U.S. Postal Service has announced it will process mail in Cleveland and deliver parcels throughout northern Ohio on two Sundays: Dec. 8 and Dec. 15.

The USPS is expecting a higher than normal mail volume on Mondays during the holidays

“Normally, we do not cancel and process mail on Sundays, but we are expecting our local mail volume to increase from about one millions pieces on an average day, to about three million pieces on Dec. 16," said Northern Ohio District Manager Melvin J. Anderson.

Anderson said the USPS asks that customers try to deposit their mail in a blue mail box or at a post office as early as possible this holiday season.

“Getting your mail to us early in the day will speed the processing and delivery of your holiday mail, he said.

Anderson said letter carriers will be out delivering parcels in many locations on both Sundays.
