Post Offices in Naples, Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres and Punta Gorda are offering extended holiday hours of operation on Saturdays and Sundays. The extended hours will be effective through Sunday, Dec. 16.

Postmasters are hoping that customers will take advantage of mailing on the weekends. Postal customers who take advantage of this opportunity will avoid the heavy traffic on Mondays.

Naples Main Post Office and Coco River Post Office will staff the Self Service Shipping & Mailing Centers on Saturdays from 2-4 p.m. and Sundays from noon-4 p.m..

Page Field Post Office in Fort Myers will offer full service on Saturdays from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and on Sundays from noon-4 p.m..

- Calculate Postage - Whether your letter or package is domestic or international, the Postage Price Calculator provides the right amount of postage for a variety of Express Mail and Priority Mail services.
