Memorial Day always falls on the last Monday of May, but because the date changes every year, it's easy for the three-day weekend to sneak up on us. First and foremost, the annual holiday honors our country's fallen soldiers, and it also doubles as the unofficial kickoff of summer and warmer weather. That's right-weekend cookouts, grilled foods galore, and easygoing country tunes to set the mood all lie ahead once the long holiday weekend rolls around.
And with an extra day off of work, you have plenty of time to kick back and relax with your family and friends this Memorial Day weekend. There's no shortage of festive activities to honor the holiday's original roots, like listening to patriotic music or personally thanking veterans at a local parade. And since Memorial Day usually boasts high temperatures and (hopefully) sunny skies, many folks also find themselves itching to get outside and soak up the long-awaited pleasant weather. Maybe your family's getting a head start on your summer bucket list and has a quick camping trip or lake getaway planned. Or perhaps celebrating with a backyard cookout at home, surrounded by your nearest and dearest, feels more up your alley-especially with a fun stock tank swimming pool to keep younger guests entertained.
No matter what you're doing on Memorial Day, one thing's for sure: We're all imperfect people, and imperfect people have an unfortunate tendency to forget things. You may find yourself in a panic and missing an extra case of hamburger buns, or just want to grab some last-minute holiday decorations because your porch feels too drab. Maybe you're even making a Memorial Day care package for soldiers overseas with your little ones and ran out of supplies or tape.
Not to worry though. These things happen, and luckily, Walmart's here to be your budget-friendly saving grace come May 27. Embodying the latter half of their "Save money, live better" mantra to the fullest, the superstore will stay open nationwide under normal business hours all day long. The schedules vary by location though, so if you're traveling, check up on the closest store online using Walmart's store locator.
If you need to make another quick errand run on Memorial Day, or find out that your neighbor's cookout is canceled due to the weather, Walmart's not alone in keeping its doors open during the national holiday. A handful of restaurants and stores are also accessible on Memorial Day, including Target and Walgreens, as well as Bob Evans and Texas Roadhouse. Now go enjoy a stress-free holiday!
