There aren't necessarily rules when it comes to figuring out what is open or closed on New Year's Day each year. Each and every business chooses to do what they think is in their best interest, or at the very least they decide to do what they would like to do.
Here is a short list of some things that we know are open or closed. If you know about something that is open today, please add it in the comments section if we missed it.
Natick Town Hall is closed today.
The U.S. Postal Service is closed today.
UPS and FedEx are also closed today.
Natick Public Schools are closed today. They will be re-opening after the winter school break tomorrow.
The Natick Mall is open today from 12-6. Many other retail stores and restaurants are open as well. Call to find out if the store you want to shop at is open today.
Again, this is just a partial list. If you know of anything else that is open or closed today, please help us out and share it with everyone in the comments section. We hope you had a happy new year.
