Fourth of July 2024: Opening and closing times explained

Get ready for the Fourth of July holiday with all your party essentials from Costco! Costco is known for its bulk items, making it the perfect one-stop shop for all your celebrations. However, if you’re planning a last-minute shopping trip on July 4th, make sure you check the store’s hours beforehand.

Costco, which typically opens at 10 am and closes at 8:30 pm, will be closed on Independence Day this year. But don’t worry, the store will be back to its regular hours on July 5th, so you can still stock up on all your favorite Costco goodies.

In addition to the Fourth of July, Costco is closed on seven federal holidays throughout the year, including New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. However, the warehouse club is open on other federal holidays like Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents Day, Juneteenth, Columbus Day, and Veterans Day.

For those curious about who owns Costco, the company was founded in 1983 by businessmen Jim Sinegal and Jeffrey H. Brotman. Today, Costco is mainly owned by institutional investors like The Vanguard Group, BlackRock, and State Street Corporation, who own 70% of the company’s shares. Individual shareholders, including Costco’s Chief Executive Officer W. Craig Jelinek and Charles T. Munger of Berkshire Hathaway, also have a stake in the company.

So, if you’re planning a Fourth of July bash, make sure to stock up at Costco before the holiday. And don’t forget to check the store’s holiday hours to avoid any surprises!
