Labor Day Best Sales 2020: Deals from Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart and More

Labor Day Weekend (September 5 - 7, 2020) is upon us and that means Labor Day sales.

The federal holiday, which is celebrated on the first Monday in September, honors American workers and the creation of the labor movement.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Labor Day has been celebrated since 1882—though the first holiday was on a Tuesday and only took place in New York City. It wasn't until 1894 that it was signed into law as a national holiday by President Grover Cleveland.

For many, Labor Day signifies the unofficial start of fall, with many retailers launching sales to help Americans get their hands on bargains ahead of the next shopping season—Black Friday.

To help shoppers across the country make their dollars go further, Newsweek has rounded up some of the best sales from major retailers, with deals on appliances, tools, electronics and more.
