This is the tool provided by the UPS store through which you can find the hours as well as the addresses and other details with ease. UPS took over the Mail Boxes Etc. and introduced the UPS Store in 2003 and rebranded all the stores in the United States. After that in 2012, Mail Boxes Etc. changes its name to The UPS Store Inc. and since then it has been serving as with this name only. Now they have the various tools and the UPS store locator is one of them. So, you can use it to find the UPS store hours easily as well as finding the UPS Sunday hours. You have to follow the below steps to find the UPS working hours:
Step 1: Go to the UPS store official website.

In the same way, as shown in the image on the right, you can check the hours of all the stores or your desired and suitable store.
Note: If you have got a particular store number and want to know the hours of that store, then you can select the store number option. Instead of the location, you can fill in the store number in the box and click the find button to get the details of that particular store. You can refer to the below image in case that you need visual help.
This is the sample image for store number 0131.
You can use these tools to find any store across the world only by following the steps mentioned above. So, we highly recommend trying to find your desired store by using the tools.
UPS also provide their official apps to provide many services in one place as most people use a mobile phone and want to get the data on their phone only. Therefore, to keep their customers’ needs in mind, UPS has been providing the services through their apps. What’s more, they provide apps for both Android and Apple users. If you are a regular UPS customer, then you should use this immediately. It will be really easy for you to find the location of the offices. Moreover, if you want the app, then you can get it directly from the links below. Select one of the links according to your phone i.e. whether it is android or apple.
Through the UPS app, you can easily track and ship your packages. Furthermore, even if you don’t have the UPS ID, you can find the following information: The nearest store, address, phone number and ups hours including Saturdays and Sundays.
The UPS app supports Android 4.2 or after version and supports iPad 2 and later version and iPhone 4 and later version.
The app is very beneficial for people who are UPS customers and use its services on regular basis. Think about this: When you want the regular update of UPS hours, it is very tiring to browse the internet or UPS site every time you want the UPS update. So in this case, downloading the app will solve all your problems as you don’t have to visit the website again and again. The other advantage of using the app is it also provides all the functions from shipping to tracking. So, all you have to do is just click on the above link. Then, it will direct you to the play store, download the link and start using it. If your phone supports the Android operating system, then click on the google play store. If your phone is from the company Apple, then click on the other link provided.
Google Maps are also an amazing option to quickly find the UPS office hours. If you don’t want to go to the UPS site and find the hours or you don’t use UPS on regular basis, then probably it will be a bad idea to download the UPS app to know the hours only. In the case when you only want to know UPS hours of services, I will suggest using Google Maps. The reason is that you only need the internet connection and simply open the Google home page or click here to directly go to Google Maps. Type your preferred location or store for which you want to know the working hours. Then click search and it will show you the store location. Upon expanding, you will get the opening and closing times of selected UPS. In the same way, you can get the nearest UPS Store opening and closing hours by following the same steps. The best advantage of using the map is you will not only get the UPS business hours for each day but also you can get detailed addresses, phone numbers and reviews of that particular store. If you still have any doubt regarding their working hours, then you can call on the number provided and clear your doubt on the phone. Or after knowing the hours and you are willing to go to that store anyway, then you can make a note on the address and go to the office directly.
Which Method to Use
Now that we have discussed four ways through which you can easily find UPS hours anywhere, you can easily select one of the ways to know the UPS hours. To be precise, you can use the UPS site to get the hour details. However, if you are a frequent user of UPS services, opting to download the app will be a better idea. On the other hand, if you use UPS less frequently, then you can get the UPS hours from Google Maps only. After a lot of information here in this article, you must have decided which method will be most suitable for you. Or even better, you might have tried one of them. If not, try next time whenever you need the UPS services as it will help you in finding the UPS office hours beforehand. What’s more, you can also schedule your day accordingly.
