MARION (KWWL) -

Post offices across the United States were humming today because it's the busiest mailing day of the year.

Lines were back to the door at the Marion post office with people waiting to send packages to their loved ones.

We are told today and tomorrow are the last days to send with standard shipping prices and have your packages delivered in time for the holidays.

Online shopping and Cyber Monday have also made the post office busier this time of year.

"The internet is amazing, the packages that the carriers are actually delivering outweighs what I have ever seen in the past," said Cynthia Luchtenburg, the Postmaster at the Marion post office.

We are told staff has been increased and more product has been brought in to assist customers during this busy holiday season.
