UPS Store expects record holiday shipping

The UPS Store, the retail arm of United Parcel Service, on Monday said it expects a record-setting holiday for packaging and shipping services at its stores as customers ship gifts.

UPS said it expects to ship more than 300 million packages this holiday season.

About 90 percent of the Mail Boxes Etc. franchisee network re-branded themselves as UPS Stores earlier this year and since then, overall UPS volume has more than doubled at UPS Store locations, the company said. UPS stores are franchised by Mail Boxes Etc. Inc., a unit of UPS.
