Post offices in the Fort Myers area will be open today, Dec. 31. Most post offices will shorten retail lobby hours and close at noon. Regular mail delivery will be unaffected by the change.

Revised hours will be posted at each post office. Signage providing information on the nearest alternate access location where postal products and services can be obtained will be posted at locations closing early.

Customers can also find information on their oost office's operating hours by at: under "Find USPS Locations."

Commercial customers are asked to check with their business mail entry units for specific information regarding holiday hours of operation.

Blue collection boxes in the Fort Myers area with final collection times before noon will not be affected by the change. However, collection boxes with final collection times scheduled after that may be collected early. Therefore, mail should be deposited into these mailboxes by noon for early pickup today.

Customers requiring postal services later are encouraged to contact their local post office. Customers also may call (800) ASK-USPS (275-8777) for additional information.

Post offices will be closed Jan. 1. Only Priority Mail Express will be delivered on New Year's Day. All post offices will be open and regular mail delivery will resume Jan. 2.

Phil Wiebold is a spokesman for U.S. Postal Service.
