Forgot to pick up ketchup, mustard, or relish for your Fourth of July cookout? Missing the buns for your hot dogs? Then you probably want to know if the grocery store is open.
A general reminder that since Independence Day is technically a federal holiday and a Sunday this year, there are stores that will in fact be closed. And in many cases stores might even have reduced hours to allow their employees a chance to enjoy time with their own families.
However, if you have left something behind in your cookout planning for the Fourth of July, then you may need a grocery store run (or two). Luckily, we actually have plenty of options to choose from as the majority of the major grocery store chains will in fact be open. And not only that, but we also have the convenience stores and pharmacies too.
Missing something for the Fourth of July? Then you may need a grocery store run
According to Country Living, we should remember that, “many stores are operating under limited schedules depending on local regulations, so it’s a good idea to call ahead to make sure hours haven’t changed.” But over all, it looks like we are in luck because among the stores that will be open, we have stores such as:
- Kroger – Standard hours expected, although they have been known to close early for the holiday.
- Target – Normal hours expected, although local regulations may impact this.
- Walmart – Normal hours expected.
- Whole Foods Market – Normal hours expected.
- Stop & Shop – Standard hours expected.
- Publix – Standard hours expected.
