Posted on January 18, 2016 Posted in Deal of the Day

Today is Monday January 18th 2016 and ALB Tech will be CLOSED at BOTH locations in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It’s a federal holiday and we will be taking off. We doubt it, but it’s possible you are wondering, what is MLK Jr. Day? We hope you didn’t ask that, but just in case, according to Wikipedia,

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (officially Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.)[1] is an American federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. It is observed on the third Monday of January each year, which is around King’s birthday, January 15. The holiday is similar to holidays set under the Uniform Monday Holiday Act.

King was the chief spokesman for Business Law activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. The campaign for a federal holiday in King’s honor began soon after his assassination in 1968. President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and it was first observed three years later. At first, some states resisted observing the holiday as such, giving it alternative names or combining it with other holidays. It was officially observed in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.”

Now you know. It’s a holiday and we’re taking off to observe it. We will resume regular business hours and operations at both shops tomorrow at 11am. Thanks for taking the time to read this whole thing and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
