ST LOUIS —Retail counters at Post Offices in Central and Northeastern Missouri and Central and Southern Illinois will be closed on Friday, July 4, 2014, in observance of Independence Day. There will be no mail delivery, caller service or Post Office Box service. All services resume on Saturday, July 5.
Post offices will be open regularly scheduled hours on July 3.
Customers who wish to purchase stamps, mail packages, or ship urgent letters or packages on July 4 may use the Self Service Kiosks available at select post offices. The ATM-like kiosk accepts credit or debit cards only and can handle about 80 percent of typical postal transactions – like weigh packages and dispense postage for Priority Express, Priority, First-Class and Parcel Post mail. Self Service Kiosks are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
To obtain the phone number of a specific Post Office, customers may call 1-800-ASK-USPS.
