What's open and closed in Minnesota on Labor Day 2020

Here's a quick guide

Congratulations, we've made it to Labor Day weekend! 

Here's a quick guide to what's open and what's closed on Monday. Don't forget to keep social distancing, avoid large crowds, and wear a mask

Buses and trains

Metro Transit buses and light rail trains in the Twin Cities will run on the Sunday/Holiday schedule (so less frequently, generally).

However, all METRO RideStores will be closed.

Elsewhere, Duluth buses will be operating on a limited holiday service, while Minnesota Valley Transit Authority buses are on weekend schedules, and Southwest Transit, a Monday-Friday service, will not be operating Monday.

Libraries

Closed. That includes the major networks such as Hennepin County, Ramsey County, Dakota County, the Duluth Public Library, St. Paul Public Library, and the Rochester Public Library.

Government services

Labor Day is a federal holiday , so government offices or services are pretty much all closed.

Parking

On-street parking meters are free in Minneapolis on Labor Day, though some spaces operated by Minneapolis Parks and Recreation and the University of Minnesota may not be – so be sure to check the meter if you're in one of their areas.

On-street parking meters are also free in St. Paul.

Big Box stores

Generally the best policy is to look up your specific store and check the hours. But since it's a big sales holiday, expect most stores to be open.

Target, Walmart, Best Buy and similar chains will be open, though they may close earlier than usual.

Grocery stores

Again, it's best to check your local store's hours, but here are a few to be aware of.

  • Most Cub Foods are open.
  • Whole Foods is open, but check as it'll possibly close early.
  • Sam's Club is good until 6 p.m.
  • Hy-Vee is open, but may have limited hours.
  • Costco stores are totally closed.

Banks

As it's a federal holiday, almost all banks will be closed, but some inside grocery stores may have limited hours. Just check ahead.

Post Office

Closed. UPS and FedEx will not have delivery or pick up services, but both websites list "critical" services as available. 

Malls and shopping

As it's a big shopping day, most will be open, but some may have limited hours. Additionally, individual stores within the malls can set their own hours.

Mall of America: 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. 

Rosedale Center: 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Southdale Center: 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Ridgedale Center: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Eden Prairie Center: 11 a.m. - 7 p.m., check hours here for individual stores.

Twin Cities Premium Outlets (Eagan): 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Burnsville Center: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Maplewood Mall: 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
