   Even as the U.S. Postal Service considers stopping Saturday mail delivery, they're staffing up to begin package deliveries on Sundays.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Amazon.com is working with local postal officials to roll out Sunday delivery in the St. Louis region by mid-March.  
   The online retailer began Sunday deliveries in New York and Los Angeles in November and had said it would add markets this year, but St. Louis hadn't been mentioned until now.  
   The paper reports that the USPS will be hiring some new workers to meet demands for Sunday deliveries.  
   Amazon hasn't made an official announcement yet, but leaders of the local postal unions tell the paper they had been told that the target date for Sunday delivery in this region is March 16.

And you might be noticing that your mail is arriving a bit later in the day.

 

The Post-Dispatch reporting that some people are not getting their mail until as late as 9PM. That is the holiday crunch--the service has seen a 43-percent increase in volume this month.

 

The Postal Service has hired 145 employees locally to ease the burden, but many are still learning the ropes.

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow can keep letter carriers from delivering a message: stopping Saturday mail delivery is a bad idea. Despite Sunday's snow storm, letter carriers rallied outside the main post office in downtown St. Louis.

U.S. Postal Service officials have announced plans to end Saturday mail delivery in an effort to cut $2 billion in costs. But the letter carriers argue that USPS will also lose business if Saturday mail delivery is stopped.

Sunday's rally in St. Louis was one of dozens across the country staged by the postal workers' union as part of their National Day of Action.
