Some may have called off work to participate in marches or protests across the country because of today’s Inauguration, but it is not a federal holiday, so you do not have to wonder if post offices are still running their mail delivery as usual. However, there are just a few exceptions. According to Postal Employee Network, several businesses in the D.C. area will suspend their working hours during the Inauguration, which means that residents served by these particular units may not receive mail. These units include:
Tech World Finance Unit – 800 K Street NW 20091
McPherson Station – 1750 Pennsylvania Ave NW 20006
Ben Franklin Station – 1200 Pennsylvania Ave NW 20044
Farragut Station – 1800 M Street NW 20033
Martin Luther King Station – 1400 L Street NW 20043
Washington Square – 1050 Connecticut Ave NW 20035
Banks are open, financial services are open and federal offices are open as well. So, this means that Inauguration Day mail delivery is the same as normal.
USPS lists their holiday closings as the following:
New Year’s Day
Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Presidents Day is coming up next month and, on that day, there is NO mail delivered as it is a federal holiday.
There are also sales, promotions and discounts at certain stores and restaurants.
