NOTICE: August Civic Holiday: Costco is Open Monday, August 3, 2020
A lot has changed in our social situations since last year, but one thing that has not changed is that Costco will be open on Monday, August 3, 2020. Even though it is a holiday for some provinces, it is not a holiday for all provinces, so Costco is open. Inevitably, every year, I get people posting that Costco will be closed on the August Civic Holiday, so please call them first before you post! Costco only posts holidays on their website when they are closed for a holiday, so is a little hard to find this information, but here is their holiday closures sign is clearly missing the August Civic Holiday.
Here is some information on the August Civic Holiday from Wikipedia:
In parts of Canada, the term “Civic Holiday” is a generic name referring to the annual holiday on the first Monday of August. However, this definition is far from uniform nationwide as Quebec, Newfoundland, and Yukon do not recognize it at all (in the Yukon the civic holiday is celebrated instead on the third Monday of August as Discovery Day). Five other provinces (Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island) do not oblige employers to offer holiday pay on this day, thus not making it a civic holiday in the legal sense. No universal name is recognized for this holiday – the official name varies between the provinces and even between municipalities within Ontario. In Manitoba, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, it is a statutory holiday.
Anyways please stay safe and please follow your provincial health guidelines when having gatherings with people outside our immediate household.
