***CIVIC HOLIDAY HOURS UPDATE***: Costco is Open Monday, August 3, 2020


As I’m getting the pictures all edited for the Weekend update post I remembered that it’s a holiday on Monday, So I though a quick little holiday hours update might be a good idea to help you plan your weekend shopping.

I called my Costco and spoke to a nice Lady who informed me that Costco would indeed be open on Monday with limited hours, so in my case 9 a.m – 5 p.m.  I also called the Peterborough & Barrie Costcos to see what they said, turns out they will both be open regular hours.

These are great days to shop (I find) as it’s usually nice and quiet. And you know me, I do enjoy my space in the aisles!

As always (with anything like this) if you are unsure, or driving a long ways head over to Costco.ca or give your local Costco a quick call to double check.

Costco holiday hours

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 clearly missing the August Civic Holiday.

Alright, I’m getting distracted! Better get back to work here folks!

See you bright and early tomorrow for your Weekend Update!


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.


As we are all getting back to normal I think it’s important to remember that we’re not out of the weeds yet, and each province has their own Health recommendations based on the provinces individual risk assessment and I would recommend that you follow the recommendations for your specific province. Information can be found at the following websites.

Ontario COVID-19 information

Quebec COVID-19 information

Newfoundland COVID-19 information

P.E.I. COVID-19 information

New Brunswick COVID-19 information

Nova Scotia COVID-19 information

So there you go, a little reading material for you.
