Nearly all supermarkets and food shops will be open. Some shops in non-tourist areas will be closed on May 1st. Most tourist facilities will be open incl the Table Mountain cablecar. Robben Island has a special link to May 1st (Workers day) so this is the only day of the year that it closes. Banks will be closed but all ATMs operating so there should be no problems in getting cash.
Everything will be open at the waterfront and just by the by its not called "Labor " Day here - i think its "workers day" or just a normal public holiday. . Waterfront shops have to be open 7 days a week so you will get all the groceries you want there - just depending of course where you are staying - if youre close enough to the waterfront.-
