Labor Day marks not only the unofficial end to those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, but also the start of a new crop of fall (and winter) savings and deals. As you’re out and about between barbecues this holiday, here are some particulars to keep in mind:

• Banks and stock exchanges will be closed

• Schools and colleges, libraries, government offices, courts and the post office will be closed

• Public transportation schedules usually operate on weekend or holiday schedules

• Trash/recycling pickup won’t be running

Don’t forget public parking is free for the holiday: the perfect excuse to take advantage of some of the best shopping deals of the day. Individual retailers may be operating on special schedules, so make sure you call ahead or use online store locators to double-check opening and closing hours before you head out. These major retailers will be sure to offer Labor Day deals and discounts:

Clothing & accessories

Health & beauty

Electronics

Home, office & garden

Deals aren’t limited to brick-and-mortar stores. Bargain hunters can find some great deals online at any of these retailers’ websites and by searching for coupon code offers and free shipping at online-only retailers. Whatever you do, make sure you don’t pay full price!
