We’ll tell you from first-hand experience: caffeine addictions don’t take holidays. You don’t want to end your long weekend with a full-out migraine — especially when there are parades and cookouts on the line — so you don’t blame you if you have one question nagging at you: is Starbucks open on Memorial Day?
Sure, you can make coffee at home, but getting your sip from Starbucks is part of your daily routine. Your morning gets lost in the mire without it. Plus, now that the coffee chain has kicked off some delicious afternoon deals through the Starbucks Happy Hour program, you’re starting to appreciate a mid-afternoon joe. So, can you count on your habitual caffeine fix? Is Starbucks open on Memorial Day, or do you need to look elsewhere for your daily dose?
