What is Labor Day?

Now, we celebrate Labor Day as an official federal holiday to recognize and honor the contributions of laborers and the American labor movement.
When Do Labor Day Sales Start?
Labor Day sales typically begin a few days to a week before the start of September and run up until the holiday. Some brands begin sales as early as August to give shoppers more chances to save big, since Labor Day is one of the last major saving events until the holiday season.
