Answer:
In the name of God: Yes, it is permissible for you to work and closing the shops and stores on the day of the tenth is usually done out of respect and as a sign of grief and sorry. While it is greatly disliked to gain earnings and seek money on this day, if you must do this out of necessity then the dislike for such an act will be waived according to your necessity. Allah knows best.
