Reeseville Post Office Will Close July 4TH 

in Observance of Independence Day


Reeseville WI —The Reeseville Post Office will be closed on Saturday, July 4, 2015, in observance of Independence Day. There will be no mail delivery, caller service or Post Office Box service.  All services resume on Monday, July 6. The Post Office will be open regularly scheduled hours on July 3.

Customers who wish to purchase stamps, mail packages, or ship urgent letters or packages on July 4 may use the Self Service Kiosks available at select post offices. The ATM-like kiosk accepts credit or debit cards only and can handle about 80 percent of typical postal transactions – like weigh packages and dispense postage for Priority Express, Priority, First-Class and Parcel Post mail.  Self Service Kiosks are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

To obtain the phone number of a specific Post Office, customers may call 1-800-ASK-USPS.

A self-supporting government enterprise, the U.S. Postal Service is the only delivery service that reaches every address in the nation: 152 million residences, businesses and Post Office Boxes. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations. With more than 31,000 retail locations and the most frequently visited website in the federal government, usps.com, the Postal Service has annual revenue of more than $65 billion and delivers nearly 40 percent of the world's mail. If it were a private-sector company, the U.S. Postal Service would rank 42nd in the 2012 Fortune 500. The Postal Service has been named the Most Trusted Government Agency for seven years and the fourth Most Trusted Business in the nation by the Ponemon Institute.


Reeseville Post Office News

Hope the summer is going good for everyone.  Just a reminder the Post Office will be closed on Saturday July 4th.  We will have regular business hours on Friday July 3rd and reopen on Monday July 6th.
