If you are thinking of running out to the store on Easter Sunday, perhaps to grab something for Grandma, or get some fertilizer for the yard, you'll want to know which stores will be open.
Easter is unlike a lot of holidays because some stores will be open, but some give their employees the day off. That means half the stores in a mall may be open, while the other half will be dark.
It's also a day many people end up frustrated, showing up to an empty parking lot when they need something in the store.
Stores that will be closed Easter Sunday 2017 include:
- JC Penney
- TJ Maxx/ Marshalls
- Best Buy
- Sam's club
- Michael's Stores
- Publix supermarkets (one of the few big grocery stores that will be closed)
Stores open, though hours may be limited, include:
- Kroger supermarkets
- Giant Eagle supermarkets
- Safeway supermarkets
- CVS, Walgreens, and Rite-Aid
- Home Depot
You'll notice that most stores specializing in Spring gardening, such as Home Depot, Lowe's, Sears, and Walmart, will be open, as many people will be working in their yards after they finish off their Easter ham.
So make sure you know if your store is open before you go, so you don't waste your time and you don't waste your money.
