When in doubt, go to Costco.
Naturally, we have come to trust that big box retailers, including Costco, are always ready and waiting for us to stop by. This is especially true when it comes to preparing for any holiday gathering, let alone the fourth of July.
But before you fly to Costco to pick up an extra pool or ready-made potato salad for the backyard (along with just about anything else), read on to find out if and when the one-stop shop will actually be open on Independence Day.
Since it̵[ads1]7;s always a smart idea to have alternatives, we’ve also rounded out the hours for the fourth of July for similar stores like Target and Walmart. That way, you have no problem getting exactly what you need for the day.
Is Costco open July 4th?
We hate being the bearers of bad news, but Costco is closed on the fourth of July. Fortunately, all US department stores will be open with normal opening hours in the days leading up to the star holiday.
In addition to observing the fourth of July, Costco also keeps its doors closed for six other national holidays: New Year’s Day, Easter Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
