Shops Open 15 July?

As 14 July is a Sunday, do you know if 15 July is also generally considered a holiday?
I can't find any reference to it being a holiday.

15 July is not a holiday. French holidays are on the day, even if it is a Sunday.
Shops that usually open on a Sunday near me are open on Sunday 14 July (and open as usual on 15 July)

Thanks, Elsie. I did find out that the local Carrefour where we are staying was open on Sunday morning. I had expected everything to be completely closed. I didn't realise they didn't take the following day if it fell on a Sunday.

That's why the faire le pont exists, to make up for when a jour férié falls on a weekend (especially à Sunday) 😎
