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!
