MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It’s Memorial Day, a day where we take time to honor those past and present who have served our country to ensure our freedom.
It also leads to some confusion on what places are closed and what are open. Here’s a list that makes it a little clearer if you’re out and about today. All post offices, government agencies and public schools are closed. Buses, trains and light rail are on holiday schedules for Memorial Day, so you’ll want to check your route before you head out the door.
Parking meters are not enforced in Minneapolis, St. Paul or the University of Minnesota, but some parks do enforce meters so you’ll want to keep an eye out.
So what stays open on Memorial Day? Most grocery stores, malls and restaurants will be open for business but may have limited hours. Also, it’s one of the biggest movie weekends of the year so most theaters will be open.
