Easter is traditionally a time for gathering together. However, this year is a little different as we are advised to keep our distance. Stores are adjusting their times and policies to reflect this new change. That’s why it’s important to plan ahead and do your shopping early. Holiday hours will be different this year, and it’s best you know what they are, and which stores will be closed.
Here is a list of stores that will be open Easter Sunday. Keep in mind, store hours will vary as will state or local laws. One major change is the recent limit of customers allowed inside at a time at Wal-Mart. As a friendly reminder, the first hour of shopping is dedicated to the elderly and vulnerable.
