Memorial Day - Decoration Day, as it was originally called, was established in 1868 - it grew out of the Civil War. The preferred name for the holiday gradually changed from "Decoration Day" to "Memorial Day", which was first used in 1882. It did not become more common until after World War II, and was not declared the official name by Federal law until 1967.
In observance of Memorial Day, we will be closed on Monday, May 26th. We will reopen for normal business hours on Tuesday, May 27th. We also would like to honor those who serve or have served in the military by saying, "Thank you." We wish everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day.
