Many view Labor Day as the official goodbye to summer. But why do we celebrate it?
According to the US Department of Labor, “Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”
If you live near one of our locations in Baltimore, MD, or Raleigh, NC, then check out the events below once you’ve found the perfect pair of Labor Day shoes.
