(NEWSER) – The US Postal Service will deliver packages on Sundays in major cities and high volume areas during the holiday season. Seven-day delivery will run from Nov. 17 through Christmas Day in response to anticipated growing demands. The agency expects a 12% growth in its package business this holiday season, or in the range of about 450 million to 470 million packages.
The Postal Service says demand for package services has grown as online retailers ship more products to their customers. (But someday, your Amazon package could be delivered not by the USPS, but by taxi.)
