Postal Service announces July 4 schedule


In observance of Independence Day (Saturday, July 4), United States Postal Service facilities will be closed for retail transactions, and there will be no residential or business deliveries.

Normal delivery and collection schedules will resume on Monday, July 6, the postal service announced in a press release.

However, while there will be no regular mail service, Express Mail is delivered 365 days a year and will be delivered on July 4.

The postal service also offers the following reminders:

*Stamps are available at most grocery stores, pharmacies, and convenient stores.

*For 24/7 access to most postal products and services, go to www.usps.com, where individuals can look up ZIP Codes, track packages, buy stamps, hold mail, print postage online, submit a change of address, schedule a package pickup, and find United States Postal Service locations (including self-service kiosks).

The Kentuckiana District serves ZIP Codes 400-409, 411-427 in Kentucky and 471, 476-477 in southern Indiana.

The postal service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products, and services to fund its operations.
