What is Open and Closed on 4th of July? – What to Expect?

On Independence Day, U.S. markets, banks, post offices, and most government services will be closed.   

A comparatively greater number of eateries and retail establishments will be open on July 4th in contrast to other significant federal holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving, catering to the public’s need for last-minute supplies or backup plans for dinner. But there are certain exceptions. One prominent one is Costco, which will be closed on Tuesday.

Potential customers who plan to visit a store on July 4 should check online or give a call ahead of time to ensure the hours that certain businesses will be open, as store hours can differ throughout chains.

Is Post Office open on 4th of July 2024?

Although Costco (COST) shutters its warehouses on July 4th, other grocery merchants like Walmart (WMT) and Target (TGT) stay open, but with varying hours. Since each shop sets its own schedule, it’s best to check online for the one in your area. There may be a rush for the best hotdog buns, so make sure to arrive early to grab everything you need for your picnic or cookout.

Shipping firms like UPS (UPS) and FedEx (FEDEX) will maintain at least some hours of operation; check with your local office before visiting and bear in mind that anything you may need to mail is likely to take longer. Federal institutions, including as banks and post offices, are not expected to be open.

To keep their stores open, big-box retailers like Home Depot (HD), Kohl’s (KSS), CVS (CVS), Rite Aid (RAD), Walgreens (WBA), and Sam’s Club will pay holiday pay. Along with decorations and Fourth of July specials and promotions, many will also be stepping up their holiday marketing.

The likelihood that a chain will stay open and maintain hours akin to a typical workday increases with chain size.

Most major cities and suburbs will have access to public transit, but it might operate on a Sunday or special holiday schedule. Regardless of where the holiday falls, it’s a good idea to check for closures or shortened hours (and give extra time for travel) to be safe.
