Poor little banjo on the doorstep

How do I receive a USPS Parcel Post package that is (probably) getting delivered to my (closed) office this week?

So, I mistakenly thought that everyone uses tracking numbers these days and the guy I bought a banjo from didn't get one. And then I mistakenly thought it would be delivered quickly, which it hasn't been. So, the office is closed (although the store downstairs is open, and I'm not there, and neither is anyone else, to receive the package.
My office is about 15 minutes walking away, so I'm checking daily, but nervous about this thing sitting outside in the cold and possibly getting stolen. I wrote and attached a Post-It to the door begging USPS to deliver it to my apartment instead, with full knowledge that that probably wouldn't work. Is there anything else I can do? This has taken a long time to ship, but I guess the holidays delayed it severely. For reference, it was shipped on the 11th from Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Is there anything else I can do? Talk to a post office? Post a different note? I signed the one I wrote, if that helps at all. Stay at the office all day long? This sucks.
 I trust him, and have recourse, please don't derail with 'u got scammed!' answers.
