VIRGINIA — Labor Day is a holiday that lets us honor the contributions of American workers, but it also gives us a three-day weekend before summer disappears to spend time with family and friends, grill out and rest. What are the odds that a recipe you try, or surprise guests who drop by, require a last-minute trip to the grocery store?
Here is a list of northern Virginia and DC grocery stores that will be open, and closed, on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 3, along with their hours. However, it is always best to call the store and make sure the item you're looking for is in stock.
Nearly every food store in the region — Giant, Wegmans, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Harris Teeter among others — is open on Monday, with a few hours adjusted for the holiday. Here is the status for Virginia and Washington, D.C., grocery chains, taken from their websites and emails to Patch. Some stores may vary.
