Rhode Island – Post Offices across the state will be closed on Saturday, July 4, as we celebrate the anniversary of our nation’s independence. Street delivery on Saturday will be limited to guaranteed overnight parcels and there will be no collection of mail.
Full retail and delivery operations will resume on Monday, January 6.
The Postal Service continues to work to stamp out dog bites. We ask customers to be mindful of pets during the holiday weekend and keep a clear path to the mailbox.
In addition, please note:
· For 24/7 access to most postal products and services, go to www.usps.com where you can look up a ZIP Code, track a package, buy stamps, hold mail, print postage online, submit a change of address, schedule a package pickup and find Post Office locations including self-service kiosks.
· Customers can also renew passports or sign up for our latest innovation, Informed Delivery, at www.usps.com. Informed Delivery lets residential consumers see what is arriving in their mailboxes by sending them digital previews of their incoming envelopes and postcards. These images can be viewed via email notifications or accessed through an online dashboard at informeddelivery.usps.com— perfect for travelers to check for important letters that are arriving over the holiday weekend.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
