It's Presidents Day, and for a lot of people, that means a three-day weekend.
Celebrated on the third Monday in February each year, Presidents Day commemorates the birthday of George Washington, a Founding Father and, of course, the first president of the U.S.
The holiday also recognizes Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday lands on Feb. 12, along with all presidents and their service to the country.
Whatever plans you've got on the calendar for the holiday this year, they might include using the extra day to cross a few errands off your to-do list, or to squeeze in a bit of retail therapy to take advantage of the many Presidents' Day sales.
Either way, you may be wondering if Costco is open on Presidents Day.

Since Costco is closed on many major holidays throughout the year, you might be uncertain as to the wholesaler's store hours are.
