What's open, closed on Monday is a bit confusing
It's hard to believe anyone has missed the ads, but have car dealers got a deal for you on Washington's Birthday Monday.
At least that's what they say.
If you aren't in the market for a new vehicle, there are lots of other things on sale at malls and individual stores keyed to the holiday. So if you missed the last couple of holiday sale events, get out there and score some Washington's Birthday specials.
Federal, state and local government will be shut down Monday, as will the courts at all levels.
While most banks will be closed, TD Bank stores will be open and there are always ATM machines if you run short of cash. That assumes, of course, that there is money in your account to withdraw.
The U.S. Postal Service will have no counter service or regular mail delivery, but Express Mail will be delivered Monday.
Automated Postal Centers are open 24/7 for use with credit or debit cards.
It will be business as usual for Fedex and UPS Monday, which recognize Washington's Birthday, but do not observe it by closing down.
The trash pickup schedules vary. Concord and Portsmouth trash pickups will be made as usual Monday. Manchester will pick up Monday's route on Tuesday, along with regular Tuesday pickups, with the rest of the week's pickups on the usual day. In Nashua, Monday pickups will be done Tuesday and the rest of the week slides a day, ending with Friday's routes being picked up Saturday,
Schools are all over the place when it comes to Washington's Birthday. Twenty-four districts, including Conway, Hanover, Mascoma Valley, Madison and Hinsdale, begin their winter vacation Monday.
Seven school districts are taking the day off. Manchester, Nashua, Dover, Hooksett, Auburn, Candia and Timberlane Regional are closed Monday for the holiday. Everybody else has classes as usual Monday.
