Presidents’ Day is a federal holiday but not everything will be closed on Monday and that includes some banks, retail stores, and restaurants. Although most government offices, including the U.S. Post Office and the Federal Reserve, will close their doors for the day on February 20, if you have banking to do, you may be in luck with some branches open either regular business hours or limited holiday hours.
Check out the list below to see if your bank or credit union will have a branch office open on Presidents’ Day. In addition, we’ve included a rundown of other businesses that will be open on Monday including mail and package deliveries that will be made by USPS, FedEx, and UPS on the holiday.
Keep in mind, even if your bank stays closed on Presidents’ Day, you can still do most (or all) or your banking if your financial institution has online banking or mobile apps. Most apps allow consumers to check balances, make transfers between accounts, and pay bills. And thanks to 24/7 ATMs, you won’t need to see a teller if you need cash, but make sure you use an ATM that’s part of your bank’s network or you’ll have to fork over as much as $4 per transaction.
The Federal Reserve closes down on all ten federal holidays so that means bank transactions, such as a cash deposit at an ATM, won’t process until the next business day. Most banks and credit unions close on the holiday because of this, but in recent years some branches located inside supermarkets have opted to stay open limited holiday hours for their customers.
One bank that doesn’t limit its hours on Presidents’ Day is TD Bank. With more than 1,300 branch offices along the east coast, customers will find all locations open regular business hours on Presidents’ Day and two other federal holidays — Columbus Day (October 9, 2017) and Veterans Day (November 10, 2017).

Before you head out, it’s a good idea to call ahead to make sure the branch near you is open.
