ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Does it seem like you’re getting your mail much later in the day? It’s not your imagination. The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports some people are seeing their mail arrive as late as 9pm.

The reason, the region`s postal service has seen a 43-percent increase in volume this month. Many packages take longer to be delivered because of staffing shortages .

The Postal Service has recently hired 145 employees to ease the loadbut some are still learning the ropes.
