In 2016 Labor Day is observed on Monday September 5, 2016. Labor day is one of the major Federal holidays in the United States, but just because banks and government offices are closed it doesn’t mean retailers are closed. In fact, many retailers take advantage of the holiday to offer discounts to pull more business into their stores. Of course that doesn’t mean every retailer is open and running a big Labor Day sale. Below we look at Albertsons, Lowes and Best Buy to let you know whats open on Labor Day and review their holiday deals.
Is Albertsons Open on Labor Day?
Yes, Albertsons is open on Labor Day.
If you’re planning a Labor Day picnic or get-together you’ll be glad to hear America’s second largest grocery store chain will be operating with normal hours. Store hours vary by location, so if you need to know the exact store hours for any particular location you’ll want to contact Albertsons directly. The pharmacies located within Albertsons are a different story. Some will be open with regular hours, some will be open with reduced hours, and some will be closed. The only way to know for sure about the Albertsons in your area is to call ahead – the Albertson’s store finder is a good option for getting the number, but you can just google it also.
Albertsons Labor Day Deals
There is no national Labor Day sale at Albertsons, but most stores will be running sales on barbecue meats (pork loin, steak, chicken and seafood), carbonated beverages and potato chips. The best way to get a good Labor Day deal at Albertsons is to coupon stack – use a combination of store discounts and manufacturers coupons to get the best deal. Use a grocery circular meta search tool like flipp to find the best circular, then use a manufacturers coupon meta search site like couponsherpa.com to find the best deal. Then pair the two in the store.
When you do go into Albertsons to get your purchase, don’t forget to chat up the cashier. They may know of additional deals that you’ve missed. For example Albertsons is offering a coupon for $10 dollars off a purchase of $50 dollars or more for Labor Day. But you’ll need a paper coupon to get the deal. The cashier may have one on hand.
