The fireworks are ready. The patriotic decor in full display. Now all you need is to remember where you put those dang hot dog buns. Forgot to buy them? Need to make a grocery run? Good news. Publix is open for business on July 4th.

What are Publix 4th of July hours?

The grocery chain only closes three days a year: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. Stores also close early on Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, and New Years Day. So you can count on getting any last minute goods (don’t forget the mustard) on Independence day. In most cases that means Publix doors will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 pm.

That said, holiday hours may vary a bit from operation to operation. Each Publix has jurisdiction on adjusting its hours as it see fits. For instance, when a severe storm blew through Charleston, South Carolina, two years ago, the local Publix closed for a few days due to the weather.

A customer service rep for Publix tells Romper that to be sure you know exactly when your local Publix store will be in operation, look for posted signage in advance of July 4th. Or call the store directly.
