Labor Day weekend has arrived, and with it, your final chances to hit the pool, take advantage of back-to-school sales and throw one last summer party to rival all the rest. We know, it can seem like a tall order to pull off everything in one weekend, but luckily for you that extra day off of work will allow for some much needed rest to recover from it all — unless you find yourself in need of a few Labor Day essentials, that is.
This year, Labor Day falls on September 5. The federal holiday is annually celebrated as a day of rest and thanks for American workers who have given their all year round. While many establishments, including the post office and the bank, will be closed on the first Monday of the month, you can count on a few retail stores and grocery stores to remain open throughout the holiday weekend. Which brings us to the one question left burning in your mind:
Is Target Open on Labor Day 2022?
Yes, Target stores will be open all weekend long to take care of your last-minute shopping needs, including on Monday, September 5. Most locations will operate with their regular hours of 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., though hours can vary by location. Stores that operate inside of Target, such as certain Starbucks locations and Target Optical, may also be functioning on a holiday schedule, so in some cases may be closed on Labor Day. As always, double check by calling ahead to ensure you have the correct store hours before you arrive. If you’re unsure where your nearest Target is located, be sure to check out the store’s locator tool.
So, if you’ve run out of sunblock, you can make a quick trip before you head out to your neighborhood pool, or if you need to stock up on last-minute school supplies, you still have the chance to pick up everything on your child’s list. Even if you’re just hoping to peruse Target’s Labor Day sales, you can check those out too. With a little help from one of your favorite one-stop-shop retailers, you’re sure to have an epic holiday.
