The UPS Store in Sherman will close at 6:30 p.m. on Friday. It is located at 718 E. Highway 82.
The deadline to have packages delivered on Christmas via FedEx overnight is also Friday. FedEx will not be delivering on Saturday.
EZ Mail, a shipping store in Denison, will be open until 5:30 on Friday. The location can ship packages from UPS and FedEx.
