Find out if UPS will deliver on Juneteenth for the year 2022.
For those unaware, Juneteenth is the holiday that recognizes the abolishment of slavery in the U.S. and helps celebrate the freedoms that this country takes for granted. It was signed into law by Joe Biden in 2021, making it a day of observance for all Americans and to reflect on the impact it has on all of us to this day.
Therefore, Monday, June 20, is the countrywide observance of the holiday, which means that some stores may have unusual hours or not open up whatsoever and treat the day as a day off. While it may be controversial, it is important to sometimes take a step back and remember to remain grateful for what we do have within society and the people around us every day.
With that being said, fast-food chains and other businesses will remain open despite the observance. However, this may not be the case for every household store that many Americans have come to love over the years.
But what does this mean for UPS stores across the country, where millions rely on its services to send and retrieve mail, plus a few other things. The answer may not be what you were hoping for.

Enjoy the extra time off with your loved ones, extended family, friends, or however else you spend your downtime.
