It’s that time of year again! Time for one last little break before we head into the season of pumpkin spice everything. One last summer retreat to soak up the sun. But whether your plans include a lake or family barbecue, we’ve still got to eat this Labor Day.
Luckily, we’ve got you covered with a list of all the spots that will still be open on Monday, Sept. 6.
If you’re in the mood for something quick, here’s where to go:
Arby’s, Burger King, Chic-Fil-A, Dunkin’s McDonald’s, Popeye’s, Sonic, Subway, Taco Bell and Wendy’s will be the go-to fast food chains open this Monday.
In addition to fast food, there will also be plenty of dine-in and sit-down restaurants open as well.
Applebee’s, Bonefish Grill, Boston Market, Buffalo Wild Wings, California Pizza Kitchen, The Capital Grille, Longhorn Steak House, Olive Garden, Panera Bread and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse will also be open.
In case you need your coffee fix, certain Starbucks shops will be open too.
Labor Day Shopping
Just in case you need to accomplish any shopping (i.e. that pumpkin spice stuff previously mentioned), Target will also remain open for all your retail needs.
The store benefits from staying open as well as consumers. Many college students returning to school, or going for the first time, can find major markdowns on bedding and other collegiate needs. Summer-end sales are in full swing as the major chain makes the transition to fall and winter collections.
Additionally, the Labor Day weekend sales bring in large amounts of customers, spiking the sales and providing the chain with one of its most successful weekends.
It’s really a win-win for everyone.
Other Entertainment For Labor Day
In addition to restaurants staying open for the holiday which honors the labor force, a few performers will also not be taking the day off. And we’re all excited.
Toby Keith and Alabama will be headlining a concert this Labor Day, but it’s not quite like you’re thinking. The concert will air in over 300 locations across the country at the same time – in the form of drive-ins, which is even cooler.
“To reach fans in big cities and small towns all across the country with the same show is going to make for not only an awesome concert experience but a heck of an outdoor tailgate party, too,” said Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry of Alabama.
The country stars will also be joined by Blanco Brown and Michael Ray. The event will happen on September 2, kicking off the holiday weekend. So be sure to check your local drive-in schedule and don’t forget the beer!
