Columbus Day is a holiday for some, but not all. Some of the folks enjoying a holiday are those who work for city, county, federal offices, libraries and Superior Courts. This means the U.S. Postal Service is closed with some pick-ups of mail, but no regular deliveries today. However, most state offices, including the Department of Motor Vehicles, are open. The banks are closed — except for Wells Fargo. The schools are open in the Burbank Unified School District.
Most of the retail stores and malls are open. They’re advertising plenty of Columbus Day bargains and deals. However, be careful where you swipe your payment cards. It’s a serious cyber jungle out there with hackers prowling and looking for prey in some of the best known retailers.
