July 4. A day to observe 247 years of independence from Great Britain. It’s time for parades, barbecues, fireworks and trips to the beach. 

But maybe you need to get some shopping done. Or maybe you want to spend some time at the mall. Maybe you need supplies for that barbecue. And then there are all the discounts and sales centered around the holiday you may want to take advantage of. 

NorthJersey.com broke down the Independence Day hours of operation for North Jersey’s malls, big box stores, department stores, grocery stores and other retail outlets. Remember, Independence day is on a Thursday this year.  And Friday, July 5, is not a holiday so most stores are back to their regular times of operation.
