Stores may operate on holiday schedules with reduced hours during “open” holidays. Many locations will open late and/or close early on these days. Of course, the exception is on Black Friday when most stores open early and/or close late! To save wasted time and gas, a quick phone call to confirm Army & Air Force Exchange holiday hours of operation is always a good idea. Happy holiday shopping!
