Memorial Day

Even though this particular holiday happens to occur each and every year since 1971, we still do receive a lot of questions like “but is the Post Office open on Memorial Day?”. To that we say, sorry, but the answer again is no. As Memorial Day is a national day-off, no governmental organizations are obliged to work on this day, and postal companies are no exception. In case you were planning to visit your local PO to buy some stamps or pick up a parcel or two during Post Office hours Memorial Day is definitely not the best time to do that if you don’t want to spend your time in vain.

Do not worry, though, they’ll be operating on the next business day as usual, so try planning your visit accordingly.
