A little FYI, banks are closed on this day so you might want to wait a day before driving out to make a deposit or withdrawal. There’s no mail delivery today either. All Federal offices, state offices, schools and libraries are also closed on this day. However, grocery stores will be open, as well as malls, liquor stores, and restaurants.
