Federal Holiday Observed: What’s Open, What’s Closed Today?

2

Because Jan. 1, 2017 fell on a Sunday, the “official” holiday is being celebrated today, Monday, Jan. 2. That means government offices, banks and more are closed today.

Here’s what’s open and what’s closed:

Federal, state and local offices – Closed

Courts – Closed

Banks – Almost all closed, check with local branch

U.S. Postal Service – Closed, no mail service

Grocery stores – Most open normal hours

Liquor stores – All ABC stores will be closed; other stores will be open, hours vary

Malls – Open, some may close early

UPS – UPS Express Critical shipments only

Fed Ex – Closed

Movie theaters – Open

Financial markets – Closed

New Year’s Day will fall on a Monday in 2018, so the extended holiday won’t be an issue.

The next federal holiday this year is Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 16.

  1. Thank you Matzav for posting this all important information at 10:17. You would think, us dummies, would need this all important information a little earlier, no? But then again, what do you expect from a bunch of rich kids who never worked a day in their spoiled lives. Nu nu.

  2. @Farbitit working stiff what was the point of that message? I for one was about to go to the bank and I appreciate the information from them. If you have nothing nice to say then say NOTHING!!
