The Bulgarian Postal Services have made BGN 250 000 in profits in 2010, the Minister of Transport, Information Technologies and Communications, Aleksander Tsvetkov, told the media Saturday.
Tsvetkov further pointed out the Posts have registered a loss of BGN 8 M compared to the 2010 positive result.
The Minister and his 9-year-old daughter, Mariana, sent a letter to Santa from the new postal services counter at the "Opalchenska" metro stop in Sofia. A new postal branch is also open at the "Vardar" metro station. They have special mail boxes for letters to Santa.
Tsvetkov informed the Posts are offering a more untraditional way for people to send greetings to friends and relatives – the telepost.
For the price of BGN 2.3, the customer can chose a Christmas card (the price of the card is not included), and send it by fax while a mailman would deliver it to the recipient's address within 12 hours.
The Central Post Office and the branches in the Luylin, Druzhba, Ovcha Kupel, and on Lavov Most (Lions' Bridge) will be open on December 24, 25 and 31 between 9 am and 2 pm.
