Posti’s services during holidays

Posti wants to ensure a smooth Christmas for all its customers. We have almost 3,300 service points all around Finland, almost 2,300 of which are parcel lockers and about 1,000 are outlets offering personal service. Our retail network consists of Posti’s own shops as well as service points and parcel lockers managed by our partners.

The majority of the outlets managed by our partners are run by shops and other companies and serve according to their own opening hours during Christmas, New Year and Epiphany.
