Say goodbye to 2023, and hello to 2024! New Year’s Day 2024 is on a Monday, and some businesses, public services and government offices will be closed in observance of the holiday.
This can include postal delivery, banks, and even the stock market.
Here’s what will be closed — and open — on Jan. 1, 2024:

Post offices will be closed on Monday, which means mail and packages won’t be delivered by the United States Postal Service.
The Federal Reserve is observing New Year’s Day, which means most banks will be closed.
Banks are not required to close on federal holidays, but many do. Check your local branch before visiting.
Court and government offices
All federal offices will be closed. However, at the state government level, some may still be open.
Courts will likely be closed, too. Check with your local branch before visiting.

Grocery stores and other retailers
Here are a few that plan to be open on New Year’s Day:
- Kroger: Some locations may have adjusted hours. Check with your local store here.
- Target: Most U.S. stores will close at 9 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, and Target will have regular store hours on New Year’s Day, the company told FOX Television Stations.
- Walmart: U.S. stores will be open, but check hours with your local store here.
As always, check with your destination on Monday before visiting.
