Is the Post Office Open on Martin Luther King Jr. Day Weekend?
The post office is open on Saturday, but will be closed Sunday. Some local branches of USPS are open on Saturdays, some are not. If you are wondering whether or not your post office is open on Saturday, give them a call. There will be mail delivery on Saturday, as usual, however, the post office will be closed on Sunday, January 14, the day before MLK Day. Because post offices are closed on Sundays, there will be no mail delivery.
Although USPS will close its doors Sunday and Monday (January 14 and 15), you can still take advantage of the basic postal services. Even when branches of the USPS are closed, there is a place where you can drop off letters and packages. You can also usually buy stamps or postage from a machine in the lobby of the post office. These services will depend on your local branch, but it is always good to check and see what you can do at your local post office just in case you need to use any of the self-service features in the future. However, there are other ways to send things out on federal holidays. If you need a letter or package to go out, you may want to consider using FedEx or UPS.
