An ideal Fourth of July is spent parked beside your backyard barbecue, but when you're running low on grilling supplies, you may be forced to make a store run. Many businesses have resumed normal operations following the COVID-19 closures, but they may still follow different schedules on holidays.

Instead of heading to your go-to corner store on Independence Day and hoping for the best, it's smart to research what businesses will be open on July 4th ahead of time. That way, when you realize you have more hot dogs than hot dog buns, you can minimize your shopping time and get back to the festivities as quickly as possible.

Below is a list of major grocery and retail chains that have confirmed their stores are open July 4th. Keep in mind that specific hours may vary by location. If you plan on heading to one of these places on Sunday, July 4th, call your local store first to confirm their hours.
