Holiday Closing

We will be closed on Monday, September 1 for Labor Day.  And, so we do not forget, Labor Day originated on September 5, 1882 (132 years ago) to create a day off of work for working citizens due to their mistreatment by large corporations.  As corporations got larger, the working class was made to work longer days and longer weeks.  This ended in protests and rioting across the nation.  You can thank the unions for this day - the Central Labor Union of New York City created the day.  Grover Cleveland signed it into law.  Enjoy your weekend!  This day is for all of us!
