Memorial Day weekend is here. And with the unofficial start of summer comes family BBQs, tons of deals at retailers across the country and of course a day of remembrance to the brave men and women who gave their lives for our freedoms.
If during the weekend you find yourself needing to make a stop at the post office to mail a letter to a veteran, among other Memorial Day activities you could participate in, or needing to send a care package to an active duty serviceman, it will be important for you to know whether or not the post office or other stores will be open on the holiday. We have all of the details on the post office’s operating schedule for Memorial Day.
Are post offices open on Memorial Day 2022?
For those of us who need to mail a last-minute package, our best bet is to do it well ahead of May 30. Memorial Day is a federally acknowledged holiday, meaning that all government run businesses, including the post offices, will be closed in observance of it. Because of this, mail will not be delivered this upcoming Monday. Other delivery services including FedEx, Amazon and DHL will also be closed on Memorial Day.
What other holidays is the post office closed this year?
- Juneteenth (will be observed on June 20)
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Columbus Day
- Veterans Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Day
What days is mail not delivered?
Mail is typically not delivered on Sundays across the country. The United States Postal Service operates Monday through Saturday in most states, but it is always a good idea to confirm the operating hours with your local location before you make plans.
