Unlike Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving, most major retailers are open Monday with one super-sized exception – Costco Wholesale clubs are closed Monday like they are for many other holidays, including New Year’s Day, Easter, Independence Day and Labor Day.
Memorial Day, which commemorates military personnel who died in service, is considered the unofficial start to summer. It’s also a popular day for a cookout and a big sales day.
According to a recent survey by Numerator, a data and tech company, 44% of consumers expect to return to normal holiday celebrations by Memorial Day. By the Fourth of July, that number rises to 59%, the survey found.
National restaurant chains, including Starbucks, McDonald’s, Dunkin’ and Chili’s, are open, and on-demand services, including Postmates, Grubhub, UberEats and DoorDash, will deliver orders Monday for participating local and national restaurants.
Check with your store before heading out as hours can vary and some stores will operate with reduced holiday hours. Click on store names to search for location-specific information. Note, not all retailers regularly update websites, so you may need to call.
