Veterans Day in the US falls on Friday, November 11, and the stock market will be open for trading throughout the day.
However, there are many places that will be closed for Veterans Day.
The post office, for example, is closed on Veterans Day, as are most banks. Several private businesses also choose to observe the holiday. In addition, many publicly traded companies offer free meals, discounts and coupons to veterans. For example, veterans can get free coffee at Starbucks (SBUX (opens in a new tab)) or a free donut at Krispy Kreme (DNUT (opens in a new tab)).
