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

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

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. 

You can also check out our Labor Day shopping guide to find out what you should and shouldn't be buying in the Labor Day sales.

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.
