Thanksgiving Day is November 24, 2016, and the banks are closed in addition to government offices and credit unions. Bank of America, Chase, SunTrust Bank, Wells Fargo, Citibank, Capital One, you name it. They are all closed except for PNC Bank which will have some in-store branches that offer limited hours on Thanksgiving. You will have to check with your local bank.
All banks will resume services on the following day, Black Friday. Should you wish to check your local bank branch, click here to search the bank tracker system. And, as far as bank transfers go, any transactions made on the holiday will not be processed until the following business day. Check deposits will not clear until the next business day as well. Online banking, mobile banking and ATMs will still be in operation.
There will be no mail delivery today, USPS branches will not be running, public libraries are closed, all federal offices will be shut down and courts will also be closed. All libraries should be closed, and trash collection should pick back up by Friday. As far as school closings go, they are all closed on Thanksgiving as well as Friday, unless noted by the individual school district. Some schools may make up snow days on Black Friday.
In most areas, parking meters may be free and there are tons of sales and restaurant deals going on, especially with Black Friday upon us.
