What You’ll Get From Labor Day Deals and Freebies
Labor Day informally marks the end of summer. Therefore, you’ll find lots of great deals and sales on outdoor furniture, grills, summer clothing, etc.
At the same time, it’s the start of the school year for many people. Therefore, many Labor Day deals and freebies include back-to-school shopping. For example, you might discover discounts on everything from dorm furniture to teacher supplies.
Finally, whenever there’s a big holiday, restaurants like to get in on the action, too. Therefore check for Labor Day deals and freebies at your favorite places to eat.
What’s Open and Closed on Labor Day?
In order to figure out where you’re going to be able to get good deals, you first have to know what’s even open on Labor Day. After all, this is a federal holiday. Many places due close. However, most retail stores stay open; here’s our list.
