St. Patrick’s Day 2015 Hours for Stores, Restaurants & Malls

Just a reminder: St. Patrick’s Day is Tuesday, March 17, 2015. Although St. Patrick’s Day is a great excuse for a party, it is not a federal or state holiday. So, it is usually not considered a holiday for the purpose of having special hours of operation. This means most restaurants, stores, shopping centers and malls will be open regular hours on St. Patrick’s Day.

Even though most places will not have special St. Patrick’s Day shopping hours, don’t think there won’t be plenty of sales and deals! These days, March 17 is a lot more than eating corned beef and cabbage while drinking green beer! Many stores, restaurants, and malls now have St. Patrick’s Day sales and/or special promotional deals and events on or around the holiday. Check with your favorite places of business to see who is having the biggest and best shopping events in your area. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!

Mardi Gras Fat Tuesday, February 17 Hours

If you live along the Gulf Coast or are visiting, you’re no doubt aware that Mardi Gras Carnival season is here! Fat Tuesday this year is February 17th. Most stores and restaurants will be open with regular hours of operation on this day. However, some locations will be closing early for the parades. Other locations will be closed for the entire day on Fat Tuesday so their employees can enjoy the Mardi Gras festivities. Trust me, Fat Tuesday is a big deal in this region! Not just in New Orleans, but also in Gulfport, Biloxi, Ocean Springs, Pascagoula, Mobile, Pensacola, even as far east as Destin and Panama City!

Be sure to call ahead and confirm hours for your favorite shopping mall, store, or restaurant before heading out on Fat Tuesday. Have a great and safe Mardi Gras 2015!

Presidents Day Hours: Monday, February 16

Don’t forget: Monday, February 16th is Presidents Day. Presidents Day is a national holiday as well as a day off from work for some and a day off of school for most kids. It is also a big shopping day, as is the entire Presidents Day Weekend which precedes the holiday.

Most stores, restaurants, and shopping malls will be open with regular hours of operation on Presidents Day. Expect to find lots of sales and special promotions at most retail outlets. Judging from the deals offered in previous years, Presidents Day Weekend seems to be a good time to buy cars, appliances, electronics, computers, smartphones, and furniture. Again, most merchants will have their stores open normal hours on February 16 for your shopping convenience.

Valentine’s Day 2015 Hours for Stores, Restaurants & Malls

Just a reminder, Valentine’s Day is Saturday, February 14. Although Valentine’s Day is a fun romantic holiday, it is not a federal or state holiday. So, it is usually not considered a holiday for the purpose of having special hours of operation. This means most restaurants, stores, shopping centers and malls will be open regular hours on Valentine’s Day, February 14.

Even though most places will not have special Valentine’s Day shopping hours, don’t think there won’t be plenty of Valentine’s Day sales! These have become popular in recent years, so most stores, restaurants, and malls now have Valentine’s Day sales and/or special promotional deals and events scheduled for February 14. Check with your favorite places of business to see who is having the biggest and best shopping events in your area. And of course, don’t forget to head back to the stores on February 15 for half price Valentine’s Day candy. Happy Valentine’s Day, shoppers!

Some Stores and Restaurants Close Early on Super Bowl Sunday

If you’re out and about on Super Bowl Sunday, February 1st, bear in mind that some stores and restaurants will close early for the Big Game. While out this past week, I noticed several businesses with signs on their front doors that indicated they would be closing early on Sunday afternoon/evening. Most of these said something to the effect of “____ will be closing early this Sunday so that our employees can watch the Super Bowl with their friends and families.”

Many places will be open with regular hours of operation, of course. Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest days of the year for sports bars and bar/restaurant establishments. But at family restaurants, business is typically slow on this day, so some have decided to close early. Stores and shopping centers/malls also have reduced traffic and customer counts on the day of the Big Game, so they may be closing early as well.

If you’re headed out on Super Bowl Sunday, be sure to call ahead and confirm the store or restaurant will be open during their regular sale hours. It’s always a better option than wasting time and gas, only to get there and find out the place is closed. Be safe out there and enjoy the Big Game!
