What Is Open (and Closed) on Presidents Day 2019

Presidents’ Day is a federal holiday that was originally created to honor the nation’s first president, George Washington. The day, which now honors all U.S. presidents, happens every third Monday in February.

Because Presidents’ Day is a federal holiday, generally speaking, schools are not open on Monday, and neither are many government institutions. But plenty of stores sure are; it’s a huge sale day for consumer retail. Trash pickup in your area may also be impacted by Presidents’ Day and running on an alternate schedule.
