Are banks and stores open on Memorial Day? It’s a fair question; not everyone can keep up with what’s closed and what isn’t on any given holiday.
Since it is a federal holiday, government offices and some businesses will be closed despite the deluge of Memorial Days stuffing your email inbox right now. By state law, liquor stores are closed on Memorial Day. Most schools will not be open either. In case you’re wondering about something specific, make sure you check what’s open and what’s not on the holiday.
Better to play it safe and load up on supplies before the weekend. There’s nothing worse than having to make a beer run during the BBQ only to be met with closed signs left and right.
