BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — It may not be as obvious as say, Christmas or Thanksgiving, but be aware that post offices are closed on Columbus Day.

In addition to that, there won’t be any residential or business mail deliveries. Priority Express Mail is an exception.

If you need to pick up stamps during the day, they’re available at most grocery, pharmacy and convenience stores.

They can also be purchased at or the nearest self-service kiosk.
