Civic_Holiday_Spend_the_Day_Focused_On_Your_Career.jpgToday is the Civic Holiday (also known as the August long weekend). Each year, the holiday falls on the first Monday of August. Most retail stores and services (that are normally open on the weekend) will operate on the Civic Holiday. Most businesses and corporations are closed for the August long weekend.

Please be advised that Liberty Staffing Services will be closed on Monday August 1, 2016 in recognition of the Civic Holiday. If you need assistance during this time, please contact an office location most convenient for you and leave a message. Liberty Staffing will reopen for business on Tuesday August 2 at 8 a.m. We will get back to you as soon as we can.
