With less than four weeks until Christmas, Australia Post will keep its Seymour post office doors open longer as it moves into the busiest period of the year.
Residents in Seymour can visit their local post office during the extended retail hours of 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 12.30pm Saturday, from November 27 until December 22.
Victoria manager David Allen said the extended trading hours will provide customers more choice and convenience to send and receive their Christmas gifts in time for the big day.
‘‘We know people are busy at this time of year, so we’re giving our customers more options to prepare for the festive season,’’ he said.
‘‘We predict this Christmas will be our busiest yet. Last year we delivered more than 34million parcels over the Christmas period, a record we expect to break this year.’’
