    My guess is that it’s not a busy day for them. They don’t offer Memorial Day sales like other retailers and a lot of people travel for the weekend. it could also be that they value the memory of those who sacrificed their life for our country more than profits, unlike most other retailers.

  3. I should check with some stores that offered Memorial Day sale. And it’s really nice to know that Costco is close during Memorial Day to observe.

    Will car dealers be open?

  7. Yes, car dealerships should be open — it’s one of the big sale days for most of them. You can always call to verify.
