With the arrival of Labor Day comes the bittersweet end of summer.
That said, there's still a little summer left to celebrate and however you plan to spend the last three-day weekend of the season, whether it be school shopping with the kids or grilling on the barbie, a trip to Costco to pick up a few essentials might be in the cards.
But Labor Day is federal holiday and, because of that, a majority of banks, schools and government offices (including the post office) are closed in observance of the day.
Thankfully, many retailers and grocery stores are open for business as usual on the holiday, giving shoppers an extra day to indulge in a little retail therapy or catch up on errands.
Is Costco one of them? The answer might surprise you. Here's what you need to know before tucking your membership card in your wallet and heading to the wholesale club this Labor Day.
Is Costco open on Labor Day 2023?
Sorry to break it to you, but like every other year, Costco will be closed on Labor Day.
Unlike many other large retailers like Walmart and Target, Costco closes on almost all the major holidays including:
- New Year’s Day
- Easter Sunday
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Day
However, according to the Costco website, “There may be slight variations in hours for each warehouse. We recommend that you view the location information for a warehouse near you."
Either way, it's worthwhile to check local store hours just to confirm.
