Million Dollar Month for Post Office Greeting Cards

The USPS NewsLink website reports, "Total greeting card revenue for the 2,001 participating Post Offices surpassed more than $1.1 million during the 5-week campaign."

Retail Products Manager Steven Mills is quoted as saying, “This was the second million-dollar month in greeting card sales — August 2011 was the first — in what has historically been the Postal Service’s slowest sales month."

More than 1,000 offices were at 100 percent or greater than their sales goals, with 186 offices at 250 percent or greater and 22 offices at 500 percent or greater. The national average percent-to-sales goal was 119 percent.

USPS recognized several Post Offices during the campaign, including the Lake Oswego, OR, Post Office which sold a contest-high 302 cards in a single day.

The first, second and third place offices with the highest percent over their sales in each of the 20 groups — as well as others that exceeded goals — also were recognized.
