Main post office busy sorting mail as holiday shipping deadline nears

Today is expected to be the busiest day of the year for sorting mail at Rochester's main post office on Jefferson Road in Henrietta.

Henrietta, N.Y. -- With the deadline to mail your packages in time for Christmas looming, employees at Rochester's main post office are busy sorting through items to be mailed today.

Yesterday, the Monday before Christmas, is usually the day the U.S. Postal Service gets the most mail and packages meant for delivery by Christmas. That means today is the day to sort through all of it.

Alexis Arnold visited the post office this morning, as employees work long shifts in order to get all that mail delivered in time.
