Fire up the grill and bust out everything red, white, and blue you can get your hands on—it’s officially America’s birthday! There’s so much to celebrate during the 4th of July, first and foremost being our nation’s hard-earned independence. The patriotic occasion also marks a much-needed day off from work to relax with family and friends, an opportunity to show off some good old American pride with patriotic quotes (and brush up on proper American flag etiquette), and time to (hopefully!) soak up some Vitamin D in the great outdoors.
But no matter how you’re spending the long-awaited summer event this year, you might (unfortunately) find yourself in need of a last-minute necessity on the holiday itself. Perhaps an item on your grocery store shopping list somehow fell through the cracks, and you’re now missing the key ingredient to your grilling barbecue side dish. Maybe you’re even trying your hand at a few new 4th of July crafts to decorate your home, but the hot glue gun’s impossible to track down. Or, you might have squeezed the last few drops out of your sunscreen bottle and need to stock up before you hit the pool.
Whatever the case, as with every federal holiday, it's always a guessing game of which nearby convenience stores and supermarkets will be accessible, should you need to make a quick errand run. Never fear, though—you won't be left completely in the dust this year.
