While many of us will be home this coming Monday to observe the passing of one of America's greatest activists and heroes, Martin Luther King Jr., unfortunately, our lives will move at the same pace no matter how hard we try. Unforeseeable mini household disasters can happen at any possible moment. And by disaster, that could be something as small as getting to the bottom of that gigantic economy plastic jar of cheese balls that you picked up at Costco last week. You may just want to aimlessly stroll down those long robust aisles on your day off from work to pick up some essentials for the rest of the month. So is Costco open on Martin Luther King Day? It would definitely be a good thing to know before you wheel your fold up grocery cart through the snow to load up on family-sized assorted Lays chips and Swiffer Wet Jet soap bottles.
