Postmaster says get ready for long lines

Posted: Updated:

Guam - If you decided to do some online shopping this year and still haven't received your packages, the Guam Postal Service says please be patient. This time of year is the busiest for the U.S. Post Office, as Postmaster Fred Workman says residents should expect long lines for the next couple of weeks. 

Several temporary seasonal workers were brought on board to help with the workload while other staff have been working extra hours to ensure packages get to their recipients in time for Christmas.

Workman offers some advice for those waiting for or sending packages, saying, "Have your forms filled out have your packages clearly sealed properly and marked so that when they approach the counter all they have to do is weigh it and pay it and move on that's the biggest obstacle we face," he explained."

Workman admits that occasionally the equipment breaks down but repairs are normally done within a day.  Residents are asked to be patient as the post office does their best to process all of the packages.
