Business briefs for Saturday, Dec. 9

Post Offices prepare for holiday season

It is estimated that between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve the United States Postal Service will deliver 20 billion pieces of mail. The offices in Summit County will contribute in part to the holiday mail madness. Locations are all open at 9 a.m. Monday through Friday, with all but the Park City Main Street location, which closes at 5 p.m., open until 5:30 p.m. Overnight packages must be sent by Dec. 22 to arrive before Christmas Day.

Some tips to save time and money, as given by the Postal Service, are: use priority mail flat rate boxes for $8.10, which includes the box and up to 70 pounds; use automated postal centers; go to almost anything a person can do at the post office they can do online; print postage labels at your home or office; request a free package pickup; call (800) ASK-USPS to get the holiday customer service hours of your local Post Office, purchase holiday stamps, check rates, ZIP Codes and more; order holiday stamps by mail; mail gift cards and hard copy greeting cards online; go to the post office during off peak hours the best time for taking packages directly to the post office for mailing is mid-morning or mid-afternoon; and buy mailing supplies at the Post Office.

There are five locations in Summit County: 6440 S.R. 224, 2100 Park Avenue, and 450 Main Street in Park City, 4820 N. S.R. 32 in Oakley and 55 W. 100 N. in Kamas.

Christmas trees for sale

The holiday season means packs of pine trees sold in parking lots across the county. This year is no different. Park City Nursery has two selling stations, one at Rite Aid at 950 Iron Horse Drive and another at 4497 N. S.R. 224. Park City Market, formerly known as Dan’s Food Store, at 1500 Snow Creek Drive is also selling trees, as is Smith’s Food and Drug at 1725 Uinta Way.
