All the Stores Open on Labor Day Just in Case You Forget Something



Once you’ve figured out the answer to “When is Labor Day?” this year (the date changes after all!), there are a few other matters to take care of if you’re hosting a barbecue to celebrate. While you’ll have to figure out activities and a guest list, there’s one other question that’ll be top of everyone’s mind: What are you going to eat?! Pulling together a delicious assortment of grilling recipes, drinks, and desserts requires lots of planning. And all those busy preparations mean you might forget one or two things on your list. But are there even stores open on Labor Day for you to pick up last-minute items?!

The short answer is, yes! There are plenty of grocery stores, retail stores, and convenience stores open on Labor Day. So if you run out of hot dog buns or forget propane for the grill, there are several places you can pop by to grab important items. For grocery stores, you’ll need to know which ones are open as well as their hours—not everyone operates on their regular schedule on a holiday. To find out what Target, Publix, or Walmart’s Labor Day hours are, and to see a list of other stores you can swing by on Labor Day, all you have to do is read ahead.
