Retail stores: Closed.
Liquor stores: Closed.
Convenience stores: Open at owner’s discretion.
Taverns, bars: Open at owner’s discretion.
Stock market: Closed.
Municipal, state, federal offices: Closed.
Mail: Post offices closed; express delivery only.
wow. I really do think that law is a good idea though. My store is open our normal hours on Thanksgiving (7a-10p) but the pharmacy closes at 5 so if anyone needs prescriptions they are out of luck. I think we should close when the pharmacy closes.
