To pickup a USPS package from the post office you just need to go to the post office and ask the post master or clerk at the post office if the package is available for you to pickup and provide the tracking number for the package.

Also you'll need to show ID to prove who you are for them to release the package to you.

Be aware though that sometimes this is frowned upon depending on the post office and it's usually best to just wait for the USPS package to be delivered to the parcel locker or to your address when the USPS worker gets to your address.

If the package is already put on a USPS delivery truck and on it's way to your address then you won't be able to pick it up and will have to wait until they deliver the package to your address.
