Viewed as the unofficial kickoff to summer, Memorial Day is a day where millions nationwide gather with friends and families at parks, beaches, and backyards for a celebratory cookout to honor those we have lost and appreciate the company we get to love in the present. Like any cookout throughout the year, though, there’s always something we tend to forget when planning for it. And as a result, our first instinct this holiday may be to wonder: Is Walmart open on Memorial Day?

Whether you’re searching for a last-minute grill that’s on sale, forget the buns for the hot dogs, need to grab an ingredient for your famous sweet potato salad and Southern baked macaroni and cheese, Walmart is a one-stop shop for all things cookout-related. Libations like Corona and Heineken are even possible to grab, too! So with all of the things that are available at the big-box retailer daily, will they actually be open on one of the biggest days of the summer?

Thankfully, for those who find themselves in a pinch and in need of items to keep the party going longer, Walmart will be open and ready to serve its loyal guests on Memorial Day (Monday, May 29). And they’ll be operating during their regular hours. So whether you need a store run to re-up on ice for the cooler, more hamburger buns, or paper plates and cups, Walmart will definitely have you covered.
