Want to beat the crowds who flock to the nearest post office Monday, the busiest mailing day of the holiday season?

You can visit the Cayuga Branch, at 285 Cayuga Road in Cheektowaga, where the regular hours include early mornings, late nights and weekends.

Weekday hours are 7 a.m. to midnight; Saturday hours are 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday’s are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Karen Mazurkiewicz, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Postal Service, said another option involves skipping the trip to the post office entirely. Visit to arrange a pickup or to take advantage of other online services.
