USPS heads into busy holiday shipping season with fewer workers, better technology

SACRAMENTO — United States Postal Service leaders say though the agency is going into this holiday season with fewer workers than in recent years, it’s prepared.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday will kick off the busiest time of the year as the holiday shopping season, and, in turn, the holiday shipping season is in full swing. Shoppers looking for those “can’t-miss” deals are already clicking “add to cart.”

“The moment Monday hits you’re just gonna be like buy now, buy now!” said shopper Samya Khanna.

It comes as fewer shoppers camp out overnight to catch a Black Friday deal they could snag online.

“It’s a lot easier to shop online than actually going out and shopping in-store,” said shopper Alissa Darcy.
