It's Labor Day: Here's what's open and what's closed today

Good news if you forgot something for your barbecue.

If you've got to run out and grab something for a last-minute Labor Day barbecue, you're in luck – many stores are open. 

Labor Day honors the labor movement and the achievements of American workers. 

And because it's Labor Day, city, state and federal offices are closed, but many shops and stores are still open. Here's a look at what's open and what's closed today.

Banks: Some branches are open – call or check online for hours. 

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. 

Malls: Many 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 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.
