Massachusetts Businesses Closed for Patriots’ Day


I am sure you already know that the Boston Marathon is being run this morning. Today marks the 118th running of the Boston Marathon. You might not know that today is a holiday in Massachusetts called Patriots Day, and many Massachusetts companies and businesses are closed.

There are several domain name and associated companies located in Massachusetts, and even though most are open in some capacity (like Sedo’s Great Domains auction), I believe that most Massachusetts-based employees have the day off today. If you are doing business with someone located in Massachusetts, you might not be able to get in touch with them today because of Patriots Day (not necessarily because of the Boston Marathon).

I’ll still be working as always, but we will be watching the Boston Marathon from mile 13, just like we did last year.
