Fourth of July 2023: Tips to grilling safely

It’s America’s 247th birthday!

And if you’re planning to commemorate it, knowing what stores will be open during the summer’s biggest holiday will come in handy.

Independence Day celebrates the Second Continental Congress’ unanimous adoption of the Declaration of Independence on 4 July 1776, marking the colonies’ official separation from Great Britain and the establishment of the United States as a sovereign nation.

Since it’s one of 11 federal holidays, non-essential government offices, banks, post offices and the US stock market will observe the Fourth of July.

But if you’re wondering where to pick up last-minute picnic essentials on your way to see the fireworks, or whether you’ll be able to buy your favourite brand of burgers before heading to the barbecue, here’s a list of what’s closed and open tomorrow:

Target

Target will be open on 4 July and operating during its usual business hours, depending on the location of each store.
