Let’s say you’ve decided to send a time sensitive parcel around the middle of November. That’s when the question “Is the Post Office open on Veterans Day?” might become an important one in order to plan and manage your mail. Veterans Day is the holiday well-known not only in the US but worldwide (though under different names) and is considered an annual federal holiday and a day-off for a lot of businesses, including USPS. So in case you’re willing to know, is USPS open on Veterans Day, you might find the answer quite disappointing: they do not provide any regular services on this day.

Why is my Post Office closed on Veterans Day?

As we all might know the holiday, observed on November 11, is an off-day for lots of companies. And even though some delivery companies choose to not modify their schedule for this holiday, USPS is not one of them. That’s why you might find your local Post Office closed on Veterans Day. Neither does the company provide home deliveries or pickups on this date, except for priority express service, which is open 365 days a year.

What was the schedule for USPS Veterans Day 2018?

2018 was not an exceptional year in this aspect: the company was having a day off from work. All the offices were closed; no regular pickups or deliveries were performed. So if you were in need of any service or assistance from USPS Veterans Day was definitely not the day when you were able to receive it. In case you failed to complete all the necessary actions by the end of working hours on Friday you had to wait until Tuesday 13th to finish it. So this year it’s best you try to manage your business with USPS according to the fact that in no way is the Post Office open on Veterans Day.
