As you prepare to store away your white pants and bid farewell to the long, steamy days of summer, Labor Day is an excellent excuse to kick back, relax, catch a movie, and stuff yourself with enough barbecued meats to last you until Memorial Day. It's also a national holiday meant to honor the country's workforce, and fittingly, many businesses are going to be closed. Fortunately, a handful of national chains will remain open on Labor Day in case you need to stock up on any last-minute condiments, feel like checking out some sales, or simply want to ditch your family for a bit.
So, to spare you from schlepping somewhere just to face a locked door, we've put together a master list of all the chain restaurants, supermarkets, stores, gyms, and more that'll be open normal or modified hours on Labor Day -- this Monday, September 3. As always, we recommend calling your local outpost of the restaurant chain or retailer just to double-check before you head out, as some tend to play by their own rules.
