What's Closed on MLK Day

A look at business and government buildings that will be closed on Jan. 20 in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, honored on the third Monday of January, has turned into a day of service for many. So while not all businesses may close on this day, some do in order to volunteer or give back to the community in some way.

Because Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day that celebrates the life and accomplishments of King, is a federal holiday, most government-run offices will be closed.
