What’s Open and Closed (TODAY) Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples’ Day | VIDEO

*New York (CNN) — Americans celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day and Columbus Day on the second Monday of October each year.

Indigenous Peoples’ Day recognizes the contributions and legacy of those who lived here long before Christopher Columbus erroneously claimed to have discovered America. President Joe Biden formally recognized Indigenous Peoples’ Day in 2021 by signing a proclamation stating that federal policies “systematically sought to assimilate and displace Native people and eradicate Native cultures.”

Some states officially celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day and others commemorate it through proclamations. More than 100 cities have replaced Columbus Day altogether with the holiday.

While many will be off from school or office jobs and enjoying the long weekend, some may be wondering what’s open and closed.

Most big box retailers, such as Target, Walmart and Kroger, will be open. Make sure to check with local businesses for their operating hours.

Government institutions

Since it’s a government holiday, government buildings will be closed – think the DMV, libraries, courts, and offices.
