Costco is one of the major retailers which closes its warehouse doors more often during the year than many other retailers. Many retailers have been opening their doors on holidays in which stores traditionally closed. However, the Costco holiday schedule includes more closed days than, say, Walmart. The company doesn’t follow a federal holiday schedule but they do have certain days that they will not be open (and it is different from other retailers).
Costco Holiday Schedule for 2018
While they don’t close for every federal holiday, they do close on some holidays to let employees spend time with their family members. Since Costco is often a destination store, when a holiday approaches to buy supplies for that holiday, it’s important to a lot of people to know the Costco holiday schedule:

Tuesday, January 1, 2019: Costco is closed on New Year’s Day 2019
While Costco is open on both Christmas Eve (Monday, December 24) and New Year’s Eve (Monday, December 31), the store closes earlier than on a typical day. The stores will close at 6:00 pm on these days instead of the typical 8:30 pm. This can be important to know if you need to make a last minute run to the warehouse. Some warehouses may also extend hours during the Christmas shopping season.
Costco Warehouse Hours 2018
- Costco is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 am until 8:30 pm
- Costco is open Saturday from 9:30 am until 6:00 pm
- Costco is open Sunday from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm
It’s important to note that the above holiday schedule and hours are general. There are exceptions to the rule, so it makes sense to verify with your local Costco if you have any questions. In addition, these are all planned closures for 2018. Other events, such as severe weather, may close a certain store during the year which aren’t listed above. It’s also important to note Costco warehouses and Costco business centers are not the same, and they may have different hours.
