Closings for the 4th

Staff Writer

The Post Office is closed tomorrow for Independence Day, which unfortunately means no WDN. Here's a rundown of what else is closed for the holiday and what's staying open.

All Auglaize County and City of Wapakoneta offices will be closed, which also means that Wednesday refuse pick-up we'll be pushed back until Thursday. There will also be no Wednesday recycling collection this week. Service for Wednesday customers will resume on July 11.

However, the Wapakoneta Waterpark, run by the Department of Parks and Recreation, will still be open for a chance to cool off and have some fun. Family swim will take place, as usual, from 11 a.m. to Noon, and there will be an abbreviated regular swim session from Noon to 5 p.m.

The Armstrong Air and Space Museum also offers a chance to get out of the heat, which will also be operating as normal.

All branches of the Auglaize County Library will be closed for the holiday, with normal operations returning on Thursday.

All banks in Wapakoneta will be closed, with the exception of Woodforest Bank, located in Walmart, which will be open for the shortened hours of 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Walmart, however, will be operating under normal hours, as will Community Markets, for any last minute grocery shopping needs.

Aldi will also open at the usual 9 a.m., but will be locking up early at 4 p.m.

If you're choosing to spend the day working in the yard or around the house, True Value will be open from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Lowe's from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Several restaurants will be open for regular hours on Wednesday as well.

CJ's Pizza, Padrone's Pizza, Happy Daz, Lucky Steer, and El Azteca, will all remain open, while J. Marie's Wood Fired Kitchen and Drinks, the Alpha Café, La Neta, Woody's, and LaGrande will be taking the holiday off.

For a sweet treat, you'll have to head to Scoops–although they will be closing early at 5 p.m.–as Max's Dairy Bar will be closed.

Coffé Amor will be retaining their regular hours on Wednesday, if you're looking for a pick-me-up, and Winans Chocolates and Coffees will be open as well, but closing up shop early at 4 p.m. Cloud Nine Café will be closed all day.

And if you're looking for an indoor activity, shopping in downtown options, as Casa Chic, Auglaize Antique Mall, 2PM Style, Rovals and Goodwill will all be open.
