Labor Day is observed and celebrated today, Monday, Sept. 1, 2014. While many Americans are celebrating the holiday with one last cookout, some are wondering if their post office and banks are open on Labor Day. Most stores and restaurants are open on the holiday, so the question, "Is there mail delivery on Labor Day?" is not an unusual one.
Due to Labor Day being a federal holiday, all government offices will be closed on Monday, Sept. 1. This includes all state and local U.S. post offices. Postal customers can still deposit their stamped bills and letters in post office boxes, but they won't be postmarked and mailed until tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 2.
