I live in Minneapolis, MN, and in 19 years of living.. I just found out last night that there's actually a post office about 10 miles away that's open 24/7! That's right! All day, every day! Except holidays obviously. . Isn't that crazy? I'm super excited to go there and try 'em out. Is this a crazy concept, or what? Not that I'm complaining, but why on earth do post offices need to be open 24 hours a day?

That's awesome. No longer do you have to stress about the impossibility of making it to work on time because you have to stop by the post office to mail a box. I wonder if they are 24-7 all year round? My local PO isn't even open on Saturdays! The town is a bit rural, so most people have po boxes anyway I guess. They recently put in an automated machine that sells stamps and mails packages, but more often than not you still need a human teller. I wonder if there will be a line on April 15th? Seems like Tax day and the day after Thanksgiving are the two most populated PO days.

I never even knew that there was a 24 hour post office. That is odd but it could be very very useful. I know I could have used one ages ago when trying to mail my sister's birthday present. Also had a problem with sending out books that people purchased from my gf and I from Amazon that could have gone out. Geez... now I want one here!

hi maezee I live in Garden Grove Ca and for a number of years certain post office branches stay open like that brought on for income tax time and they just kept them. I have never used one but can see if it was really important that you put something in the mail so it can be delivered at a certain time you would need' a postoffice that was op;en all the time. so its good for somethings.
