Miami, Fort Lauderdale what’s open, what’s closed on MLK Day


Whether you consider Martin Luther King Jr. Day a day of service, a day to learn about the assassinated civil rights leader or just a day without work or school, stores consider it a day when you have time to go shopping.

So, the malls and Publix and Walmart and Navarro will be open for your consumer and medical needs. But this is an official federal and state holiday, so some of those public services that normally happen on a Monday will not be happening this Monday.
