Is the post office open or closed on New Year's Day, Jan. 1, 2014?
You will have to wait a day, if you need to mail a package or if you're waiting for an important piece of mail to be delivered. There is no mail delivery on Wednesday and all U.S. Post Office locations will be closed for the federal holiday.
You won't have much luck mailing or receiving a package with UPS and FEDEX, either. Both shipping companies will be closed on New Year's Day 2014.

All U.S. Post Office locations will be closed for the holiday, but you can still access your post office box for any mail that was delivered on New Year's Eve.
Some locations have stamp kiosks in the lobby as well, but if you really need stamps, most grocery stores have books of stamps available at their customer service desk.
When will the post office re-open and when will mail delivery resume? All your bills and junk mail will start flooding your mailbox on Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014, so enjoy the mail-less day on Wednesday.
In addition to mail delivery resuming, all USPS locations will be open regular business hours on Thursday.
