If you need to stock up on groceries do it before Sunday.  Aldi and many, many other stores in Illinois will be closed for the holiday.  However, there are still some big boxes that will be open for you to fill up your big box.

More Stores Closing For Holidays


More stores have closed for holidays throughout the year.  Historically stores would close on Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and Thanksgiving.  But then with the arrival of shopping mania and Black Friday, stores started opening on Thanksgiving as well.

In recent years, the trend has moved back to giving employees off for Thanksgiving Day and even more holidays.  This is partially due to employee and public pushback, but even more so because people can shop anytime they want online.  So instead, companies are saving money by not paying employees double holiday pay and closing the doors.

Now, there is a new holiday that is seeing the trend of brick-and-mortar stores closing for the day.
