For the DIY enthusiasts looking to complete an outdoor deck project, you’re going to need the right supplies to get the job done. Luckily, most Home Depot stores are open on the 4th of July, so you can enjoy your BBQ, your day off of work, and still complete that killer outdoor job you’ve been contemplating working on for months now.
Is Home Depot Open on 4th of July?
Almost every Home Depot store is open on the 4th of July. In addition to this observed holiday, some of the major US holidays which Home Depot also opens on includes
- New Year’s Day
- President’s Day
- Easter Sunday
- Memorial Day
- Labor Day
- Veterans Day
Of course, every store can set their own hours on these, and other nationally observed holidays. So, before visiting shortly before closing time, or the first thing in the morning, it is best to check with your local store to make sure they’re open during normal business hours on the holiday.
What are the Hours of Operation?
Most Home Depot stores throughout the U.S. maintain relatively normalized business hours of operations in their stores. A majority of the stores open at 6 AM on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, with closing times of 10 PM on these days. On Sundays, many Home Depot stores will open from 8 AM to 8 PM.
As is the case with which stores open on 4th of July, many stores in different regions of the country might maintain different standard operating times. Therefore, local customers should check with their store manager what the hours of operation will be, and if special holiday hours are going to be put into place on the 4th of July.
Are There Special “Holiday” Hours?
Each store manager, or region, has the authority to operate special holiday hours on different days of the year. Since the 4th of July is a traditional, observed holiday in the U.S., patrons should inquire with local stores what the hours of operation will be on the 4th of July. Since the 4th of July falls on a Thursday this year, if there are no holiday hours in place at your local stores, most stores should open from 6 AM to 10 PM on that day.
Does Every Home Depot Open?
No; every Home Depot isn’t required to open their doors for operation on the 4th of July. Certain stores in smaller regions of the U.S., or in areas where there isn’t much traffic, might choose to close on the date. Furthermore, some stores will set shorter hours of operation on the holiday.
Although it’s an observed U.S. holiday, the Home Depot operates as most retail stores operate, meaning they aren’t required to close and give their employees the day off. Since their employees aren’t federal employees, and are employed at will, this also means if they are scheduled to work, they’re required to come in as long as it doesn’t interfere with a religious holiday/celebration.
DIY enthusiasts preparing to make the most of their day off of work can prepare for the holiday and their outdoor project with a trip to the Home Depot to start off the 4th this year.
