What's Closed in Windsor Locks, East Windsor and Beyond For Labor Day

Monday's the holiday, here's where Labor Day came from and what's closed that day.


Just what the heck is Labor Day anyway? Well, it's a holiday borne out of labor strikes by Illinois railroad manufacturers in the 1890s. While the United States is the largest manufacturing country in the world (for now), Connecticut’s work force in this industry has shriveled by 45 percent since 1990, according to the Connecticut Labor Department. This day off is intended for employees of all industries, so here's what's closed on Monday:

  • All federal and state offices
  • All Windsor Locks and East Windsor municipal offices
  • All Windsor Locks and East Windsor public schools
  • U.S. financial markets
  • Banks and credit unions
  • All postal offices
  • Commuter trains such as Metro North and Shore Line East will run on a holiday/weekend schedule Monday
  • The DMV until Tuesday
  • Connecticut Lottery Headquarters in Rocky Hill

Here's what's open:

  • Retail Stores
  • Supermarkets
  • Restaurants
  • Convenience stores
  • Bars/Taverns
  • Liquor Stores
  • Call ahead before heading to any of the above establishments to confirm they are open. Many retail stores may be operating on a Sunday schedule or with limited hours.
