LANSING, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer. If you’re on the road, looking for an extra bag of chips for your cookout, or simply not in the mood to cook, here’s what is and isn’t open on Labor Day.
There’s no need to go to the mailbox on Monday. The U.S. Postal Service observes Labor Day and will have the day off. Most FedEx services will be closed for Labor Day. You likely won’t receive any FedEx deliveries on the Sunday before Labor Day either, as only Home Delivery and Office will be available. In addition, Labor Day is an observed holiday for Amazon and UPS.
Most retailers will be open for Labor Day, including Big Lots, Dollar General, Kroger, Sprouts, Target, Trader Joe’s, Walmart, Aldi, Sam’s Club, and Whole Foods. Hours may vary and some stores may close early, so make sure to check the local store’s hours online before heading out.
Pharmacies at stores like CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and Wegmans may have limited hours, or close entirely, on the holiday. Call ahead or check your location’s hours online before trying to pick up a prescription.
