What's open, what's closed on Veterans Day

This year's Veterans Day is being observed on both Sunday and Monday

Veterans Day 2018 is unique for a couple of reasons.

First and most importantly, it marks 100 years since the end of World War I; secondly, it falls on a Sunday, meaning it's being observed both on Sunday and Monday.

This makes it a bit tricky to figure out which stores and services will be closed for the next two days, but here's a quick guide on what's available and what's not in Minnesota.

Government offices: Most federal, state, and local offices will be closed on Monday, including the U.S. Postal Service and U.S. court buildings. 

Banks: Wells Fargo and US Bank locations are among the major banks staying closed on Monday; however, TCF Bank will have regular weekday hours.

Liquor stores: Since Minnesota liquor stores can legally operate on Sundays, whether they stay open today is up to them, and same goes for Monday. Call ahead or check online before you head out.

Malls and stores: Virtually all malls and stores will be open Sunday and Monday, with many (including Mall of America) offering special deals, promotions and events.

Schools: Sorry, kids... most public schools, including those in the Minneapolis and St. Paul school districts, will be open as usual on Monday, and same goes for the University of Minnesota

Metro Transit: City buses and the Blue and Green lines will be operating as normal both days. The only reduced service happening in November will be on Thanksgiving. 

Parking meters: A couple of breaks coming your way in terms of public parking. There's two days of free parking in St. Paul (according to the city's website, neither Sunday nor Monday will have meter enforcement), while Minneapolis will have free parking on Sunday (but meters will be enforced on Monday as usual). 

Garbage collection: If you're in Minneapolis or St. Paul, there is no change to service if Monday is your usual collection day.
