Delivery timing

In 1810, mail was delivered 7 days a week but in 1912, the situation changed and post offices and mail delivery was stopped on Sundays this for regular mail only. Nowadays, USPS Mail (with the exception of Express Mail) is not delivered on Sunday. After budget restrictions, Saturday delivery was temporarily suspended in April 1957, but finally restored. In 2013 USPS announced that standard mail delivery service would be done up to 5 days a week, which was reversed by Congress

Most of people are asking: does mail come on Saturday? Does the post office deliver on Saturday? Is USPS open on Saturday? Or about the USPS business hours on Saturday. This question depends on two factors, the geographic location of the recipient (zip code, states) and the product chosen by the sender.

So yes USPS does delivers mail on Saturdays. The Saturday delivery depends on the mail class. USPS delivers only Priority Mail Express and Priority Mail package on Saturday for now. The delivery hours and delivery time on Saturdays depend essentially on the location of the warehouse, if the package is “out for delivery” it should be delivered the same day.
