DETROIT, MI — Detroit area Post Offices will observe Columbus Day on Monday, October 8, 2018, a federal holiday. The Post Office will be closed and there will be no mail delivery.

Mail will be collected from blue street collection boxes at scheduled times on Monday, throughout the Detroit area. Postal officials advise anyone with stamped or metered mail ready for delivery, especially businesses, to drop this mail into a blue collection box instead of waiting to do so the following day.

Customers needing postal services may use self-service kiosks at select locations or visit Postal Service Approved Shippers. Go to to find a location near you.

Post Offices will reopen and regular mail delivery will resume on Tuesday, October 9, 2018.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
