MLK Day: What Stores And Businesses Are Open? CVS, Target and More

Martin Luther King, Jr. day is more than a day off. It's a symbolic day to commemorate the life of one of the most powerful civil rights leaders and to recognize the movement that helped give many Americans the rights they have today. Barack Obama urged Americans to turn the holiday weekend into a weekend of service during his presidency, encouraging Americans to take part in giving back to their communities to honor King's legacy.
