U.S. Postal Service Proceeds with Request for Postal Rate Change
As part of “Delivering for America,” its 10-year plan to achieve financial sustainability and service excellence, the United States Postal Service recently filed notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) requesting price changes to take effect Aug. 29, 2021 that are in accordance with approvals provided by the PRC last year.
The proposed price changes would raise overall Market Dominant product and service prices by approximately 6.9 percent. First-Class Mail prices would increase by 6.8 percent to offset declining revenue due to First-Class Mail volume declines.

Back to School...Back on Track
While we don’t know yet what the school year will look like, we can anticipate that children will be returning to their classrooms for the 2021-2022 school year. Historically, the Back to School season has been the second busiest buying season of the year. This, combined with the website traffic trends we are seeing in the retail category indicates that now is the time to begin planning your Back to School strategies.
According to the NRF, As of early June, one-quarter of back-to-school and college shoppers had already started picking up items for their fall classes. This is up from 21 percent last year and 17 percent in 2019 before the pandemic.
During a shopping holiday, such as Back to School, gaining additional customers is good for the bottom line. And when it comes to customer acquisition, the best place to learn how you can engage and provide valuable marketing to your shoppers is with website browsing intent data.
