Cudahy WI — On Monday, January 20, 2014, the Cudahy Post Office will observe the federal holiday honoring the anniversary of the birth of noted civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Post Office will be closed and there will be no mail delivery or retail service.
However, customers are encouraged to still drop their mail in blue street collection boxes, so they can be processed starting early morning on Tuesday, January 21.
“We want to advise anyone with stamped or metered mail ready for delivery to drop this mail into a blue collection box instead of waiting to do so the following day,” said Cudahy Postmaster Mark Groshek. “This also applies to our business customers, many who will still be open during the holiday. We want to get a quick start on processing their mail.”
And for those customers depositing mail on Tuesday, January 21, Groshek advises they drop their mail no later than 3:00 p.m. in order to get it processed sooner.
“On your way to work or school is the best time to drop the mail at the Post Office or blue collection box,” adds Groshek. “The earlier in the day we receive the mail, the sooner we can send it on its way to its destination.”
Post Offices will reopen on Tuesday, January 21, with full mail delivery and retail service.
