Your offer for free delivery service on Labor Day is tempting indeed; however, why are your workers working on Labor Day? I hope they will be given another day to take as a personal day at a later date or at the very least “time and half”. Have we forgotten the true meaning of Labor Day? Are you honoring your workers social and economic contributions by having them schlep groceries to the 4th floor walk-up residences of office workers? Perhaps we can all live with the inconvenience of not having delivery service for one day of the year. I know I can.
