Is Costco Open on Labor Day?
No. Costco will be closed on Labor Day. Costco gas stations will also not be open on the Labor Day Holiday. Costco is known to value its employees immensely and the company has chosen Labor Day as one of the few days during the year that it will not be open. This won’t stop the company from offering its customers great Labor Day deals on the weekend before Labor Day.
Costco Labor Day Deals
Costco doesn’t have any Labor Day-specific deals but the company’s current sales range from items such as laptops, consumer electronics, furniture, room accessories and men’s and ladies’ wear. If you are shopping at Costco, you’ve got numerous ways to save money. Costco allows manufacturer coupons (you can find great ones at the Krazy Coupon Lady). They also offer store-specific coupons (based on location). You can give your local Costco a call to see if there are any deals like that.
You can also start your Costco membership with a coupon. (Check out this article about Costco membership coupons.) Once you become a member you are eligible to apply for a Costco credit card. This is another great way to save at Costco. By using your credit card, you’ll get cash back on every purchase.
