Banks and Postal Service:
Presidents Day is a U.S. Postal Holiday so the post office lobby will be closed and you won’t get any mail delivery either. And because the day is a federal holiday, it’s a bank holiday as well. It should be noted, however, that not all banks and credit unions observe Presidents Day. Check with your bank to be sure.
Malls and retail stores will not be taking the day off because then how else can we get HUGE savings on mattresses, sofas, and cars. Our founding fathers would have wanted it this way. 'Merica!
