Memorial weekend - closures?

Hi, we will be arriving by train late Sunday night on memorial weekend. Just wondering what is effected on Monday with holiday closures. Are shops open etc?

We have a Boeing Tour booked for the morning and Space Needle dinner at 6.30, so was thinking of doing some shopping in between. Thanks

The malls and department stores will all be open. Typically there are well advertised sales over the 3 day weekend. If there is a specific shop you want to visit, then I'd check online for their holiday hours. On Memorial Day most will follow their Sunday hours which means an earlier closure than Mon-Sat.

Note that next weekend is when the Northwest Folklife Festival is held on the grounds of Seattle Center (Space Needle) so things will be VERY busy in that area (around 250,000 people attend.)

If you have time, it's a lot of fun, and some years the weather is very supportive, e.g. -
