In response to this week's blizzard across North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota, the U.S. Postal Service plans to open post offices and deliver packages on Sunday.    
 
Officials says Mother Nature knocked the postal service on its heels this week, so they're taking this step to help honor their commitments during the holiday season.
 
There won't be regular main delivery Sunday, but packages will be delivered in and around communities with ZIP codes that begin with the following three digits: 565, 567, 580, 582, 583, 584, 585 and 587.
 
"We're pretty close to caught up on the delivery side. Of course that means folks are going to get a lot of mail in the next couple of days. We're confident that if the weather holds we're going ot be back up to speed pretty quickly," said Pete Nowacki, Communication at USPS.
 
Post offices in many smaller communities will be open Sunday with full retail and post office box services. 
 
Call your local post office to see the correct hours of operation.
