Summers are meant for spontaneous drives with your windows rolled way down, radio turned way up and iced coffee chilling in the cup holder.
A Starbucks iced coffee, to be exact.
While you can always count on your favorite barista to have your blend ready and waiting for you — even despite all the Starbucks ingredient shortages in the last year— there's nothing they can do if the stores are closed altogether.
That brings us to the question on every coffee lover's mind: Is Starbucks even open on the Fourth of July? And if so, is the beloved coffee chain following modified holiday hours?
No matter what your Fourth of July plans are, caffeine is an absolute must. So, before you round up everyone’s coffee order to jumpstart your red, white, and blue celebration, get all the details about Starbucks' holiday plans.
Is Starbucks open on the 4th of July?
Take a sip and breathe a sigh of relief because Starbucks is open on the Fourth of July.
"Store hours vary by location and stores may occasionally adjust their hours based on business and customer needs," a Starbucks spokesperson told TODAY.
Customers have the most accurate holiday hours in the palm of their hand. "The Starbucks app continues to be the best way for customers to find a store, check store hours, order ahead and use contactless payment."
In addition to using the Starbucks app, you can visit the store locator on the Starbucks website for the most up-to-date information.
