Labor Day Weekend has arrived and, for many, the holiday’s arrival means a day off work and the chance to relax or catch up on some errands in making use of the extended weekend. It also means that many businesses are closed for the holiday.
While certain retailers such as Wal-Mart and Target maintain normal hours during the Labor Day holiday, there are others who look to observe the holiday by either closing doors for the day so that their employees can also enjoy the holiday weekend or restricting their hours for the day.
If you’ve come to this piece, you’re likely preparing to head out for a Costco run, but want to ensure the store will be open this Labor Day before heading out the door. After all, there is nothing more annoying than getting to a store or restaurant on a holiday only to discover they’re closed and you made a trip for nothing.
So is Costco one of the stores that operate at normal hours on Labor Day or is the brand one that closes its stores for the day?
