Today is Labor Day, and it brings with it the unofficial end of summer and the start of a new school year.
This annual observance, which falls on the first Monday in September, pays tribute to the American labor movement and the significant contributions of workers to the nation's growth and prosperity.
As today is a holiday for labor day, it's important to know which businesses and institutions will be open and closed on Monday, September 4th.
Retailers: Open for Business
If you're planning some last-minute shopping, you're in luck. Major retailers like Walmart, Target, and Kroger will be operating as usual. Most Walgreens and CVS stores will maintain their regular hours, but it's a good idea to check with your local store, as some pharmacy hours may vary. However, please note that the wholesale giant Costco will be closed for the day.
Post Office: No Mail Delivery
The United States Postal Service will be taking the day off on Labor Day, so there will be no mail delivery. UPS will also be closed for the holiday, except for its Express Critical services. FedEx, on the other hand, will continue its operations through its premium FedEx Custom Critical service, while FedEx Office locations will have adjusted hours.
Banks: Closed for the Day
Labor Day is one of eleven federal banking holidays, so banks will not be open for business. However, you can still use ATMs and access online banking services.
Stock Market: A Day Off
Investors take note: the US stock market will be closed on Labor Day. Both NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange will observe a trading holiday.
Government Offices: Shut for the Day
Federal offices, government buildings, and post offices will be closed on Labor Day. This includes institutions like the DMV and local libraries. State and local courts will also be on holiday, so make sure to plan accordingly.
As you enjoy your Labor Day festivities, keep in mind the businesses and services that will be available to meet your needs.
