The Brainerd Post Office has expanded its lobby counter service hours for the next three Saturdays in December for the holiday season.
According to Postmaster Warren D. McQuay, lobby service hours will be 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14 and Dec. 21.
McQuay said that Dec. 16 is typically one of the heaviest mailing days so people are encouraged to choose Tuesday or Wednesday as an alternative to waiting in line.
The post office will host Customer Appreciation Day on Saturday. Customers are invited to stop by the Brainerd Post Office and enjoy coffee and cookies while they send their Christmas mailings.
