is there a change in retail hours?

Went to the post office in a mall and realised it does not open like 9 am anymore. But at 11 am..has there been a shift in opening hours due to Covid? I realised many retailers ar eonly starting to open at 11 am..that is late.

You actually went to the post office?

These days there’s aggregator websites for postal services.

Eg like Skyscanner, but for courier.
I’ve actually used this to snoop around on costing to send my parcel overseas.

The courier I chose actually sent someone to pick it up from my home.

Damn, I sounded like I’m advertising.

No, you sound exactly like what we want. You are recommending a service you have used successfully. That's what it's all about. If you are recommending a company you have not used personally, then you are either soliciting or advertising or receiving a quid pro quo. We don't have a problem with posting links if it is a recommendation.

Did you go on a weekend? Most post offices are closed then. I’ve used easyparcel before as well, its much more convenient and efficient than going in person.
