We make it a point to drop off our packages at the Merrifield location because not only is it a regional P&DC, but the post office attached to it stays open until 8pm on weekdays and even opens on Sundays. I think that post office closes exactly one day out of the year, which is Christmas.
Jack, Yes, that's great to hear. For those of you who are not familiar with this post office - or the volume that goes through there, on tax day (April 15th), they literally put out orange pylons on the main highway and have those canvas mail carts out on the road collecting the tax returns that people are mailing in sort of like a "drive-through" fashion. There are cops around, flares lit, etc. It's kind of funny to watch, but horrible to get stuck in if you're just trying to pass through the area.
