Five Below, home of the Sunday “Squishday” Squishmallow drop, is often compared to dollar stores like Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, and Dollar General. Even though Five Below offers some products well over $5. they still rock discount prices on everyday products and trendy items geared toward kids, teens, and women. Knowing when to shop Five Below is half the battle at getting the best deals, as some merchandise sells out fast — and never gets restocked. Five Below hours vary throughout the year and among locations. However, we’ve done the research and have come up with a handy guide to their general schedule and holiday hours.

Five Below hours change with the season, but they follow a general pattern.

Most retailers like Family Dollar and Dollar Tree have a standard year-round schedule, with only a few adjustments around the holidays. But Five Below store hours vary by the season. So what does that mean for you as a shopper? Here’s what you can expect:

Mid-December through April:

  • Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Sunday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

May through September:

  • Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Sunday 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

October through mid-November:

  • Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
  • Sunday 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Mid-November to mid-December:

  • Daily 9 a.m. – 10 p.m.


All Five Below locations are open on Sundays.

Five Below hours may vary by location.

Although all Five Below stores are corporate-owned, that doesn’t mean they all have the same store hours. We looked at Five Below locations across the U.S. and found a few outliers to the general pattern.

For example, the Five Below Knollwood location in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is open from noon – 10 p.m. every day. In the same city, only 12 miles away, the Five Below Quarry location is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Although they are pretty close in distance, the Knollwood store opens three hours later than the Quarry store. This means you should definitely check the Five Below hours at a store near you.

We also found different hours for Five Below stores located inside shopping malls. They varied considerably from standalone brick-and-mortar locations. For example, the Five Below in the Mall of America is currently open every day from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
