Presidents’ Day: What Is Open and What Is Closed in El Paso
Monday, February 18, 2019 is Presidents' Day. Or President’s Day, or even Presidents Day.

OPEN. The El Paso Zoo’s admission gate hours will not be affected.
Bus routes will not be affected; Sun Metro will be operating on a regular weekday schedule.
Banks and Postal Service:
Presidents’ Day is a U.S. Postal Holiday so the post office lobby will be closed and you won’t get any mail delivery either. And because the day is a federal holiday, it’s a bank holiday as well. It should be noted, however, that not all banks and credit unions observe Presidents' Day. Check with your bank to be sure.
Malls and retail stores will not be taking the day off because how else can we get HUGE savings on mattresses, sofas, and cars. Our founding fathers would have wanted it this way. 'Merica!
