Growing up I recall July 4th a lot of stores were closed that day or limited hours. Well not any more. Even Goodwill is open 9 to 9. Why? I can see restaurants but thrift shops? I guess for business the concept for holiday for worker is becoming extinct. First Thanksgiving is all but gone, New Years Day has been a regular day for decades. I guess only Wall Street, Banks and Government workers (some) will have the whole day off.
