It is good to be home and living in a town that doesn’t live for 4th of July tourists. Many shops and businesses actually close for the national holiday. But there are plenty of stores that will be open for business as usual.
If you forgot that bag of chips or need to pick up another case of beer, will be open, along with . If your chips must be organic, is open 'til 4 p.m. These are good things, because will be closed and you’ll have to make your own pasta and potato salads.
If your dog is trembling from the sound of the fireworks at the County Fair this week and needs a stuffy to comfort him or her you’re in luck, will be open till 2 p.m. But if you have a trembling child, you’ll be out of luck at .

And, as always, will be open 24 hours and that includes all day today. The other convenient stores throughout both towns will likely be open also.
Wishing everyone a very safe and fun holiday, you’ll find us at the fair after watching the Novato parade. (Or check out the .)
