Martin Luther King Jr. Day is observed every year on the third Monday in January. This means in 2022, the day lands on January 17.

The day honors the birthday, life and legacy of the American civil rights leader, who was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia.

In August 1963, King delivered his famed "I Have a Dream" speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a federal holiday. This means many government offices are shut, while some private businesses may be closed in observance of the day.

Some venues may also be offering limited services and have safety restrictions in place (including reduced hours and capacity as well as mask mandates) amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Here we look at the opening hours for different stores on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Contact your local branch to confirm exact timings as well as more information about safety restrictions and requirements before visiting any of the businesses listed below.
