Department stores aren't the only places dealing with procrastinators. Post offices around the country are also trying to keep up with the holiday rush.
Monday was the busiest mailing day of the year for the main post office in Lufkin. It's estimated, close to 200,000 pieces of mail went through the post office that day- that's three times the normal amount of mail cancelled at the post office.
The post office isn't extending its hours during the holiday season, but it won't close until the last person in line leaves.
Acting postmaster Stanford Logan says, "We encourage people to go to www.usps.com and use 'Click and Ship' so they can print their postage there and apply it to the package and bring it down."
The last pickup at the post office is at 7 p.m. every night; that includes packages and stamped mail.
