Is UPS open on Thanksgiving? Like many other businesses, the postal service provider observes this holiday, so workers take a day off. Usually, all store locations and sorting centers are closed. No deliveries are executed on the territory of the US on this day, so if you ordered local shipping, expect delays. You’ll be able to receive your parcel on the next business day.

In 2018-2019, UPS does NOT work on Thanksgiving day. It does not provide any services except for UPS Express Critical. This type of delivery is executed as usual.

UPS Thanksgiving delivery is not executed throughout the day. Thus, you cannot receive your parcel on this day, and it won’t be delivered to your house. Sorting centers don’t work and don’t update the delivery information.  If you were expecting a parcel delivered the day before Thanksgiving, it might be waiting for you in your mailbox – check it.

The official UPS website and mobile application are available regardless of holidays.
