Memorial Day is big business for retailers because it marks the unofficial start of summer, which means consumers load up on everything from travel gear and outdoor supplies to every barbecue accessory under the sun. Memorial Day is perhaps best known for mattress and furniture sales, but you can also score deals at deep discount chains like Dollar General, Dollar Tree and Family Dollar.

All three of those retailers will be open with normal hours on Memorial Day, NBC Today reported. This year Memorial Day falls on Monday, April 29. Although Memorial Day is a federal holiday, you’ll have a hard time finding any major retailer that isn’t open for business.

Dollar Tree tends to stay open on holidays throughout the year because the Virginia-based chain does a lot of business on major holidays, according to the Holiday Hours website. The only days Dollar Tree closes are Easter Sunday and Christmas Day, Holiday Hours noted. To find local hours at Dollar Tree on Memorial Day, click here.
