What’s open (and closed) on Memorial Day 2021

·3 min read

America, largely, was forced to skip Memorial Day last year, but in 2021, we’re ready for our cookout.

The holiday, which honors American soldiers who have died in military service, is the unofficial start to summer. And for many people, it’s the first three-day weekend since January.

For retailers, it’s sometimes the last chance to capture shoppers’ attention before they begin to focus on outdoor activities. But not every store is open. And it’s even more uneven with government and private services.

Here's a comprehensive look at which stores are open and closed, and which services are available, on Memorial Day 2021.

Are banks open on Memorial Day 2021?

Generally, no. Memorial Day is a bank holiday, so you won't be able to make a counter deposit or withdrawal. But you are still able to use ATM machines to get cash or make a deposit into your account.

Is the post office open on Memorial Day 2021?

Memorial Day is a federal holiday, so the [hotlink]U.S. Postal Service[/hotlink] does not operate. [hotlink]UPS[/hotlink] and [hotlink]FedEx[/hotlink] also take the day off, but UPS [hotlink]Express[/hotlink] Critical and FedEx Custom Critical are still available. FedEx will also suspend Express service the Sunday before Memorial Day and Ground, Ground Economy and Freight service for the two day before the holiday.

Is the stock market open on Memorial Day 2021?

If you want to invest on Memorial Day, you’re going to have to think about cryptocurrencies, since Wall Street takes Memorial Day off, as well. The New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq, and bond markets are all closed.

Which department stores are closed on Memorial Day 2021?

With Prime Day looming, brick and mortar retailers are eager to use Memorial Day as a sale opportunity. Some, though, give their employees a break. [hotlink]Costco[/hotlink] will be closed. And many locally-owned small businesses choose to take the day off as well.
