Labor Day Sales, the Northwoods Way

Labor Day is a popular time for mall shops and online retailers alike to capitalize on the transitioning seasons, the last-minute scramble to get all the back-to-school essentials, and an extra weekend day of leisurely shopping time to draw in patrons with major sales. As an alternative to shopping at big businesses this Labor Day weekend, consider seeking out unique events in the Northwoods where you can find one-of-a-kind items and support the local economy and community members. Here are five special sales events taking place over the long weekend.
