About the United States Postal Service

A self-supporting, independent federal agency, the U.S. Postal Service is the only delivery service that reaches every address in the nation: 155 million residences, businesses and Post Office Boxes. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.12888515_10154069312144810_559064071407089210_o

With more than 31,600 retail locations and the most frequently visited website in the federal government, usps.com, the Postal Service has annual revenue of nearly $69 billion and delivers 47 percent of the world’s mail. With more than half a million employees, the Postal Service is one of the nation’s largest employers. If it were a private sector company, the U.S. Postal Service would rank 43rd in the 2015 Fortune 500 and 137th in the 2015 Global Fortune 500 list. The Postal Service has one of the world’s largest computer networks — linking nearly 32,000 facilities and making communication possible between hundreds of thousands of employees, as well as our customers.

The Postal Service mission is to provide a reliable, efficient, trusted and affordable universal delivery service that connects people and helps businesses grow. Everyone living in the United States and its territories has access to postal products and services and pays the same for a First-Class postage stamp regardless of their location.

The Postal Service is already a technology-centric organization. It uses the world’s most advanced tracking and information systems to speed the flow of mail and packages throughout its network, creating literally billions of data points every day. The Postal Service is leveraging the information derived from that robust scanning and tracking to add value to the senders and receivers of mail and packages — and to create new products and services to spur growth in the mailing industry.12615144_10153937912994810_828888854269488854_o

Welcome to chokoMODE!

About the designer

Marcelle Gakam proudly hails from Cameroon, Central Africa before transplanting to the United States.   Driven by her passion for fashion, she sets up chokoMODE headquarters in Houston, Texas.  Now residing in New
York, the fashion capital of the world, and taking courses at FIT, Marcelle is determined to make her original chokoMODE brand of style and apparel a worldwide standard of the fashion industry.

According to Marcelle, the name “Chokomode” was inspired by her grandmother’s name Choko,  but decided to add “MODE” to emphasize the unique spirit, culture and heritage of strong professional women across
the globe.  Thus the tagline, “dressing the professional woman with elegance” was born.

Influenced by her French-African roots, she was compelled to build a brand from the ground up that spoke to sophisticated women from various backgrounds, ethnicities and walks of life. chokomode

A native of Brooklyn, NY with roots in Barbados, An educator (MS. &  Ed.S ) with a love for the outdoors, nature and natural/pure healthy foods and products, especially in the products that we feed our body both internally and externally.  Handcrafting soap, creams and other products is not just a hobby or past time, but one of the most important endeavors that I have undertaken.  The purpose of making handcrafted soaps initially was to create beautiful fragrant and chemical-free products, but soon I found it much more important that others understood why and how using them is so important to their overall health over an extended period of time.  My products are made in small batches to insure the quality is  always consistent.  Hot process soaps can be created in a 24-48 hour time frame  Cold process soaps made upon request require a longer curing time and usually ship within 3-4 weeks to insure freshness.
