Truth be told, most beauty supply stores in the United States stay open from Monday through Saturday from 9 am to 8 pm. However, the hours of operation on Sunday can vary from business to business; but a good number of stores open from 12 pm to 6 pm.

In the United States, the various levels of government barely regulate the opening and closing hours of retailers (aside from the blue law), and maybe the only exception is shops licensed to sell spirits and other alcoholic beverages and car dealerships.

Shopping hours in the United States also tend to vary widely based on each business management considerations and the needs of its customers. Other things include the size of the metropolitan area, the type and size of the store. Las Vegas, Nevada, for instance, is renowned for being different in terms of normal business traditions. Las Vegas is world-famous for its 24-hour local culture because it is an area with large gaming and tourism industries.

All stores tend to stay closed on Easter, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. In recent years, however, most retail stores have started staying open on the evening of Thanksgiving Day. Early closing (half days) is common on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.

Some supply stores also have reduced hours on other major holidays. Malls and department stores, coupled with other stores remain open longer hours between Thanksgiving weekend and Christmas Eve for Christmas and holiday shopping.

Blue laws, as they’re most times referred to in the United States, mandate nonessential stores to be closed on Sundays to comply with local moral and cultural standards. According to reports, right from the year 1959, counties reserve the right to enact or repeal blue laws.

Bergen County remains one of the few counties in the United States known to carry out strict blue laws within its limits. All retail stores, except those offering food and gas, are closed on Sunday.
