Yes, Walmart is open today. The only day of the year Walmart stores close is on Christmas. (see full list and qualifiers below)
There are times when you need to go to the store no matter what day it happens to be, and if it happens to be a holiday or some type of special event is taking place, knowing whether the store is open or not isn’t always readily apparent. It’s in those cases you want to know if the store is open so you don’t go all the way down there (wasting both time and money) only to find out the store is closed. The good news for those who shop at Walmart is that it’s open almost every day of the year, with a couple of exceptions.
The information below is general information, and there may be special events or circumstances where your local store may not abide by what most stores do on specific holidays. For this reason, it’s always best to call your local store branch to determine whether or not they will be open, and the hours they will be open on that particular day.
Below you’ll find a list of major holidays and whether or not Walmart is open on those days.
