Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer, but it's also a federal holiday recognizing the American labor movement and the contributions of laborers to the United States.

That means that this coming Monday, post offices, schools, some banks, and Costco warehouses will be closed, while other stores may have modified hours. 

There will also be no regular mail delivery on Labor Day, but Priority Mail and Express Mail packages may be delivered.

Amazon also does not deliver on Labor Day.
