FAQ: Is Santee Alley open when it rains?


Yes! The Santee Alley is open 7 days a week, rain or shine, including all holidays.
We never close!

With the arrival of El Niño and the first rain storms of the season, we’ve received a number of inquiries regarding hours on rainy days. Please be assured, the Santee Alley maintains the same hours of operation regardless of weather. Though the alley is open-air, all stores are located within buildings. Stores are very close together, which minimizes the amount of walking necessary to shop the area. To find the nearest parking lots, click here.

All stores in the alley are independently owned and operated. This means each business sets its own business hours and store policy. However, you’ll find most stores open by 9:30 a.m. In the winter months stores may start to close as early as 5:30 p.m. In the summer stores typically stay open until 6 p.m.
