Clueless, we don't have the hours of operation for every UPS facility on the Compass site, but you should be able to find what you need at ups.com/locations. If you will enter your ZIP Code and select only "UPS Customer Centers," the one you are trying to find should be on that short list. Hours of operation are provided.

Still have no idea what the hours of operation are at the South Portland, ME facility. Thanks for wasting my time.

Dear UPS: Thank you for sending an UPDATED Holiday Calendar, as I received one earlier that covered the Thanksgiving Holiday. I am sorry that so many people look for things to complain about. Geesh!

Grow up people...how sad that you have to post a complaint on something so minor... you had to click a button that took you right to the page (I know, so difficult!!)...poor thing...take your ball and go home...

It still would have been much simpler to just include the schedule in the email in addition to having it on the site. The way you have done it makes no sense from a customer perspective, You can listen to your customers or not, your perogative.

Reggie, the Outlook and Google calendar versions are in development and will definitely be available by next month. So, please check back on the site in early October!

What I miss is the version where the UPS Holiday schedule could be incorporated into my outlook calendar. That way all the planning and scheduling I do within my outlook could correspond to the shipping schedule.

Kevin and Jen, we really aren't trying to make this difficult. We post the schedule on the website because it is used by a wide variety of people. There are Tweets sent that link to the schedule, just as our e-mail linked to the schedule. There will be banner ads on different sites linking there. We figure an e-mail doesn't have a long shelf life, so it should live on the website.

Kevin, I have to agree with you in regards to receiving an email with a link to another link with a PDF. Does UPS have to make everything so complicated?? The irony is that this is a logistics company; you would think sending a simple holiday schedule would be just that...simple!

So, you sent me an email which contained a link to your website which had another link to open a .pdf which gave me your holiday schedule. Did nobody consider that just including the schedule in the email would be MUCH easier for everyone?

I know... what a way to start the Holiday season... let's all just go home on Black Friday... the busiest shopping (and COULD be SHIPPING) day of the year.

The day after Thanksgiving ? Thanks a lot. Nothing like seeing half the center sent home and routes cut out to add to the holiday spirit. #scruge
