Liquor Stores On Labor Day

Every year, Labor Day always falls on the first Monday in September. This year’s Labor Day Monday is on September 3, 2018. While many view Labor Day as the end to summer, the official ending of summer isn’t until the third week of this month. This year’s autumnal equinox actually falls on Saturday, September 22, 2018.

Whether or not you view Labor Day as an end of summer celebration or not, you may be looking for some refreshments to enjoy the day. Unfortunately, most state liquor stores are closed, but, depending on which state you live in, they could be open.
