Confused...I thought the Postal Service was considering dropping Saturday delivery and now will deliver on Sunday? Love my mail man and great service to us, so hope they keep it working. Thanks, Mr. Postman, for letters right to my mailbox!

Delivering the mail once a week would be plenty for me.

I am guessing what the article did not mention is this will only be "parcel" (package) delivery.

Amazon shares are only $52! What a deal! Is that a Prime Eligible purchase?

I'm sure the volume of Amazon shipments and some $$ they threw the Post Office's way helped make Sunday delivery possible. It will only be items ordered from Amazon. But if some other mail-order place wants to enhance their deliver, I'm sure the USPS will give it a listen.

I hope the Twin Cites gets added! Mail 2x per week would be fine with me, but I want my Amazon packages ASAP!

I love it! Are you paying attention "brick and mortar" stores? Other than grocery shopping I have less reason than ever to put up with hassles at stores.

With the way online purchasing has increased it was only a matter of time before this happened. Parcel business has increased every year over the past decade.
