Costco is running its Memorial Day sale online (opens in new tab) today. But what about in store: is Costco open on Memorial Day? After all, Costco warehouses aren’t always open during holidays in the US, and Memorial Day is one of the biggest holidays of the year for Americans.
The retailer might sound like a great place to stock up for your summer plans, given how paper plates and barbeques are all but synonymous with the Memorial Day holiday. But if you’re planning a big get together today, it’s too late to stock up at a Costco warehouse: they’re closed for Memorial Day.
Fortunately though, other retailers are open – and there are plenty of Memorial Day sale events happening online too.
Is Costco open on Memorial Day?
Costco’s warehouses are closed on Memorial Day, so if you’re looking to pick up some last minute items – those ridiculously large bottles of ketchup and relish, say, for the cookout – you’ll have to head elsewhere today. You can still take advantage of Costco’s Memorial Day offers online, though. Just don’t expect deliveries to arrive today.
Where to shop on Memorial Day instead
Walmart’s your best alternative bet for food: its stores are open today, with steak and grilling essentials from $1.50 (opens in new tab). We have a number of other suggestions too…
If you’re in a bind and need to grab some last-minute items before guests arrive today, you aren’t entirely out of options. Several major retailers like Walmart and Best Buy are running store hours on Memorial Day, but these will be holiday hours, and they will vary by retailer and location.
Many of these retailers are also running online Memorial Day sales today and many, like Amazon, offer same-day delivery (though the majority won’t have this as an option for Memorial Day itself). Our top picks? We’d say the Walmart Memorial Day sale and Best Buy Memorial Day sale.
