Long lines formed at the Batavia Post Office today.
According to Darlene Sharping, who has been at the customer service desk for 14 years, the Batavia Post Office has been one busy place for the last three weeks.
Today the wait in line was about 20 minutes. Some people walked in and walked out, while others braved the line and waited.
Marybeth Bowen needed to mail a large envelope for $1.90, but did not have enough stamps. She had six but needed eight. In the Christmas spirit, another woman who was waiting in line to mail a lot of packages, volunteered to mail her envelope so she would not have to wait in line for stamps.
Sal Oddo, who has worked behind the customer service desk for 35 years here in Batavia says tomorrow is the last day to mail out packages to places like Florida or California. Anything after tomorrow might not make it in time for Christmas.
If you are mailing in the Northeast the last day is Thursday.
The Batavia Post Office will be open from 9-5 during the week.
Boxes were the theme in line today.
Even though the lines were long most people seemed to be in the Christmas spirit.
