Does Best Buy have Memorial Day sales?

When is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day 2024 is set for Monday, May 27, meaning there's only a few weeks left ahead of the three-day holiday weekend. Memorial Day is always observed on a Monday—the last Monday in May, to be exact.

Are stores open on Memorial Day?

While most major retailers will be open on Memorial Day, a select few will close their doors in recognition of the national holiday. Costco and UPS, for example, will be closed, while stores like Walmart, Lowe's, and Target will remain open. As always, you'll also be able to access Memorial Day deals online without having to worry about store closures or even leaving your house.

What is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day is an annual event recognizing and honoring fallen U.S. military personnel. Originally called Decoration Day, Memorial Day has been observed since 1868 and has since become a federal holiday. Meant to mourn and pay tribute to those who died while serving in the Armed Forces, many people visit cemeteries, attend memorials, and march in parades on Memorial Day.

In more recent years Memorial Day has also morphed into the unofficial start of summer. Memorial Day weekend is typically a time when friends and family gather, have barbecues, and even shop Memorial Day sales. Although not as big as shopping events like Black Friday, Memorial Day sales are geared for folks looking to save on summer essentials, kitchen appliances, TVs, and more.

Is Memorial Day a federal holiday?

Yes, Memorial Day is a federal holiday. Congress established Memorial Day as a federal holiday in 1971. As such, most businesses, schools, and banks close their doors on Memorial Day proper, meaning many Americans have a three-day weekend leading up to the last Monday in May.
