Veterans Day falls on November 11 each year. The federal holiday commemorates the official end of World War I, which took place on November 11, 1918, and honors all those who have served in the military.

Most government offices are shut on Veterans Day as it’s a federal holiday. Many banks as well as some private businesses are closed.

Many restaurants and stores remain open but might be on a reduced schedule.

Below are the Veterans Day store hours for some of the country’s major shopping venues.
