The U.S. Postal Service has announced that it will cancel and process mail in Charleston for two consecutive Sundays on December 8 and 15.

Mary Sullivan, Appalachian district manager, said customers should deposit their mail in the blue mail boxes as soon as possible this holiday season.

"Since we are expecting a higher than normal mail volume on Mondays during the holidays, we are going to cancel and process mail in Charleston on these two Sundays," Sullivan said. "Getting your mail to us as soon as possible will help us process and deliver your holiday mail on time."

Normally the post office doesn't cancel and process mail on Sunday, but it said it is expecting mail volumes to increase from about 400,000 pieces on an average day to about one million on Dec. 16.

"We appreciate your business and we are committed to providing all of our customers with the best possible mail deliver service," Sullivan added.

The postal service is also asking customers to send out mail early in the morning during the holiday season.
