ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One of the busiest places in town during the Holidays is the Post Office.

The U-S Postal Service expects to deliver close to 19-billion cards, letters, and packages this season.

Friday the lines weren't bad but workers say that's because people were out buying gifts.

They expect crowds to pick up Monday. Before you head to the post office employees there have some advice for you.

"Mail early. You know, pack it well, pack all your breakables, you may want to insure those breakables. Mail early, tape it up good. We've got boxes and tape here of course and we've got all the packing supplies here. And anything going overseas or to other countries...military especially get those out before December 1st," says Andrew Skandamis with the U.S Postal Service.

If you are mailing overseas and can't make it by Monday they say you're probably still okay if you take another week.

They also suggest putting everything in one box if possible. You can get better rates that way.

Workers say shipping in Albany offices normally triples during December. Feedback
