For the first time since 2009, a fireworks show is scheduled to be held at Mount Rushmore on to celebrate Independence Day, despite the wildfire risk.
This Fourth of July will look vastly different from past years because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Cities across the nation have canceled professional fireworks displays Saturday but more consumers are expected to put on their own shows and fire up the grill.
But with at least 21 states pausing reopening or taking new steps to limit the spread of COVID-19, what stores and restaurants will be open Saturday will vary greatly depending on where you live.
Costco is the largest retailer staying closed on Independence Day, which it traditionally does for other holidays too, including New Year’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day and Labor Day.

This year, Trader Joe’s is closed, a change from past years when it operated with reduced hours, “to give all of our Crew Members a much needed and well-deserved day of rest,” the grocer said on its website.
Like with other federal holidays, it’s considered a good time to buy a car, a mattress and shop other sales.
