Postal Delivery Question

It is my daughter's birthday party tomorrow and a few parcels I am expecting that should easily have arrived by now , have not. On Saturdays the post delivery is almost a skeleton one on bike rather than van so parcels never get delivered on a Sat. My question is could I possibly ask at my local post office in the morning if they have them there and collect them?

Thanks for any advice.

Re: Postal Delivery Question

You can ask, but I don't know whether they'll have them at your local post office. I think that parcels are distributed from a different postal center than the normal letter mail, but it's worth a try, anyway.

Were the parcels sent A or B post? B's don't get distributed on a Saturday

Sent from Uk so neither. Thanks for your reply. Our parcels (small ones like the ones I am expecting) normally get delivered with the regular post by my postie who loads his van at the P/O along the road.

I'd head down to the Post Office and check - you can explain to them what it's about:
