What's open and what's closed on Labor Day?

Good news if you need groceries, but not if you're expecting mail.
Author:

On Monday, the U.S. once again marks Labor Day, honoring the labor movement and the achievements of American workers.

Since it's a federal holiday, you'll find some regular services closed or operating with restricted hours.

Here's what's opened and closed on Monday.

Banks: Most major banks will be closed, but some inside grocery stores may be open. TCF Banks in Cub Foods stores, for example, are open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Government buildings: Most city, state and federal offices will be closed for the day.

Grocery stores: Many major grocery stores are open, but hours vary, so call or check online for details.

Liquor stores: They can legally be open on Labor Day, but some may choose not to be. So call or check online for details.

Mail: Post offices are closed, and there won't be regular mail service. UPS also observes Labor Day, as does FedEx.

Malls and stores: Labor Day is a big day for discounts, so you'll expect to find most major malls and stores are open, but call ahead or check online for details.

Metro Transit: Buses and the Blue and Green lines will be on a Sunday/holiday schedule, while the Northstar trains won't be running. More information can be found here.

Parking meters: They won't be enforced in Minneapolis or St. Paul, while the University of Minnesota may be enforcing some of its meters.

Schools: Public schools are closed.
