Every year on Labor Day, Americans celebrate the U.S. labor movement, as well as the countless hard workers who built this country and keep it running strong.

As of July 2020, there were more than 159 million people in the U.S. civilian labor force—and, in honor of the federal holiday, many of them are taking the day off this Monday, Sept. 7.

To help you navigate Labor Day, here’s a list of what businesses are open and closed:


  • Target—Open regular hours
  • Walmart—Open regular hours
  • Kroger—Open regular hours
  • Trader Joe’s—Open regular hours

  • Government buildings—Anything government-owned, such as the DMV and public libraries, is most likely closed.
  • Banks—Financial institutions are generally closed, although ATMs are always available if you need to deposit a check or get some cash.
  • Post office—The U.S. Postal Service will not deliver mail Monday, and U.S. post offices are closed as well.
