Full-service windows, postal-box rentals, self-service vending machines, a drive-through mail drop and parcel lockers, which eliminate the need to wait in line to pick up large packages, are available.Seventy employees work at the post office. Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The lobby area is open 24 hours a day seven days a week, according to Sandy Postmaster Robert Vunder.
