Since Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer, it’s no wonder so many people love to celebrate the day with an outdoor gathering. If you’re hosting this year you’ll need to stock up on some summertime food, which begs the question, is Publix open on Memorial Day? Even with all of the planning in the world, chances are high you’ll need to pick up something last-minute and you don’t want to waste time driving to the store only to find it closed.

Luckily, that won’t be the case if you head over to Publix this Memorial Day because stores will be open and operating on their regular schedules, a representative tells Romper in an email. Most stores across the country tend to have similar hours; however, they can vary slightly from location to location so you’ll want to be sure to double check your store’s specific hours before heading over. Even better, you might want to call to confirm they’re open just in case something unexpectedly changes. You can find your store and its hours using the Publix store locator online.
