Deadlines to have presents shipped by Christmas Day loom


The deadline has passed for people to use standard shipping with the USPS and have those gifts delivered by Christmas Day.

Now people will have to use First Class and Priority Mail to get presents to their destinations by Dec. 25th. Those deadlines are:

First-Class Mail® Service Dec. 20
Priority Mail® Service Dec. 21

The post office in Elkhart had some long lines Monday morning.  Customers we spoke to say it seems like habit to wait until the last minute.

"Waiting until the last minute and then going, 'Oh, I've got to get this out,' you get in line and go, 'Why don't I not do this and just ship it out earlier next year,'" says James Keen of Elkhart.
