On Memorial Day, we celebrate those great American heroes who sacrificed their lives for our country by honoring their contributions to the growth of the nation. The day is also a federal holiday, which means that many stores, banks, restaurants and government offices are closed. If you find yourself needing to make a grocery run this holiday, you may rejoice on May 31 as some of your favorite stores are open.

Whether you need to stop by the grocery store, a convenience market, or anyplace else, there are plenty of options for you! Before you indulge in a few Memorial Day sales or turn on one of your favorite Memorial Day movies, you'll definitely want to call your local store ahead of time as hours could vary depending on location.
