Publix rarely disappoints, and so we're not at all surprised that our favorite Southeastern grocer will open its doors on Memorial Day this year. You'll be able to pick up last-minute groceries, supplies, and ready-to-eat treats from Publix's deli and bakery. While many other businesses will be closed in observance of the holiday — honoring those who have paid the highest sacrifice for our nation — nearly all Publix locations are expected to operate on normal business hours in 2021.
Some local stores scattered throughout Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, the Carolinas and Virginia have adopted new shopping hours due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most locations, however, will be open to shoppers for 12+ hours on the holiday — opening at 7 a.m. and closing between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Monday.
There's a chance that Publix pharmacies located within its grocery stores will be closed on Memorial Day, which may give you cause to call ahead for special prescriptions. But if you're on the hunt for a heaping bowl of potato salad or a jug of sweet tea to accompany your barbecue menu, you'll be in luck! And don't forget — Publix subs are always available in case you burn the burgers (d'oh!).
